Doing the Best I can...

by Cynthia
(Belmont, NY)

My 91 one year old father told me I was suffocating him with my caregiving. He has poor vision in only one eye and blind in the other, deaf without his hearing aides, bone infection in both feet requiring daily IV infusion. Father was released home despite being recommended to rehab because my mother insisted she could do the daily IV.


Has been a nightmare--finally got 2 people to train to be a back-up to provide alternative to my mother doing the IV when visiting nurse is not there and both parents highly resent me for this--my father in frustration had said "I'd gladly pay someone $100.00 a day to do this so your mom doesn't have to".

When I took over the bills, telephone and electric were on final disconnect notices. Now mother says "You have taken everything away from us".
