Siblings? Ha!

by jen

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. Mom is 92 and the most stubborn, unhelpful, illogical person on the planet. Problem? For sure. Dad is in Maryland and Mom is in Florida. My health and my marriage are both falling apart. I'm done. I cannot do this anymore. I'm gonna jump off a bridge myself, and let someone else do this.

put them both in Assisted Living facilities

in their areas. That will take at least some of the stress off you. If they have homes then sell or rent out the homes and use the profits to pay for the ALs. Obviously they need help and it's draining you to try and manage the two of them, one long-distance.

It's not worth your health and quality of life. My mom did the same to me. She's now in an AL. Has been for 2 years in December. Complained badly at first (it was really her idea, but I digress) but has now made friends, the place is getting better (new management - thankfully!), and she understands I can't be her caregiver anymore due to my own health challenges (gravity mostly lol). Hugs and best of luck to you.

And BTW - I have siblings but they left the picture 30+ years ago so I might as well not have any....

They each must have some assets you can sell to pay for assisted living. I suggest you do so and get your life back. My mom is in one and that’s what has saved me!
