Overseeing Mom's Care
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??
