How a family turns THERE backs on elderly PARKINGSONS parent

by Patricia
(Georgetown SC )

My mom passed away Aug 2016. She fought a long hard fight with Parkinson's. I THE youngest daughter who was disabled from traumatic brain spinal Injuries but I wasn't able to turn my back and let the abuse and neglect CONTINUE that nursing home admitted. They LAUGHED at facial tremors they LIED for a week SAYING pneumonia was treated.

I caught SOUR milk being served 6 TIMES plus they let her LAY there with septic only giving her 3 days or left to live.

Yes I HAVE anger that I was so STUPID my sister NEVER TRIED to help except she wanted her in HOSPICE saying she could have a sitter when if she would have helped my mom in 1989 when we lost our stepfather.

Weeks after my brain injury my mom would have received VA benefits and could have had a sitter at home for 13 years. Instead STRESS from nursing home abuse my memory started returning and I got her benefits for last 2 years of her life instead of benefits filed for in 2007. I couldn't turn my back on my mom and she lived with me another 18 months.

This person called a sister wasn't even a daughter to scream and yell send her back to NURSING home.

I prayed to God to please let my health holdup long enough to see my mom THRU this and those 18 months was worth million SHE thanked me every night.Yes she DESERVED better care than what I have but I tried.

For SO many years she fell, EVEN fell backwards once when left alone for 5 minutes and had brain injury. Never did my sister OFFER PENNY TO pay anyone to sit with our mom.I love and miss her everyday just wished I could have been normal person but it took the abuse to make me see why simple things in life were so hard to do after wreck.

Yesterday I signed my DNT PAPERS because I don't want to live in a world where family's are like mine. Funny I worry about my sister when God handles WRONG she has done to both our parents cause she TRIED her whole life to destroy me and succeeded this time
