Overseeing Mom's Care

by Tara
(Washington, DC)

I am the older one of two adult children and only daughter. I am married with 2 teenage sons living at home. I also work part time in a school. My younger brother is remarried with 2 young children. I am the POA and our dad died 2 years ago. Our mother has Parkinson's disease and has been living in assisted living for 2 years.


She lived a 25 minute drive from me & a 10 minute drive from her son. Guess who regularly saw mom & always took her to doctor appointments?? Me, her daughter.

She recently fell & hit her head, took her to the hospital, no injuries but needed rehab for PT, OT & speech therapy. She begged me to please put her into skilled nursing, a much better facility for her, meeting all her needs, her neurologist recommended a placement into long care, now that she's in a nursing home, my brother & his wife are so upset with me!!!

Really, THEY DO NOT HELP AT ALL WITH ANYTHING THEY RARELY IF EVER SEE HER & ALL THEY DO IS CRITICIZE EVERYTHING I DO, INCLUDING PUTTING HER INTO SKILLED NURSING. Does anyone else experience this crap or what??

No help but full of complaints

Tell them STFU. since they never bothered to help they have absolutely no room to bitch about anything action you took to ensure appropriate care for mom. You don’t need them in your life either

    Well, if you've got siblings, at least you have someone else to be angry at. I'm an only child of divorced parents. Dad is 95 and gentle as a lamb.
