Sole Caregiver Daughter

by Lyn

I am on SSI, college grad (BA in Exercise Science), currently primary caregiver to an 82 year old mother. We share a home that my older brother owns and I do just about everything related to house, plus we have a rental on our property.


I am the youngest child of two. My brother lives and works in Japan and comes home to vacation/visit every summer. He is 57 and married, no children. I have no children either.

My mom and I share the bills. We are flat broke at the end of the month. I am a cancer survivor twice and my mom is very bright, a UC Berkeley graduate plus she has her masters degree. We only go out to the market together once a month because of the pain and fatigue my mom has after.
I read your website information and feel hopeful you may be able to help me.

Sincerely Yours,
Lyn

Stressed Out Daughter
by: Tonni

Mom is 91. Falls a lot. Not eating right or enough. In and out of hospitals for various reasons.

Home not being kept up. Bills late, etc. I want her to move in with me. I have lovely room for her.

She won't leave because she is caregiver/enabler to 63 year old alcoholic son. Further more....lost son to alcohol abuse last year. I'm fed up and angry.

As I cannot be her keeper so she can be brothers keeper. I can't run two homes simultaneously
