I am the sole caregiver for my 82 Year old Mother. I have sisters and a brother, all of whom, cannot be bothered to help.
A couple of nights ago, I had to call paramedics AGAIN....I found a toilet full of blood. She refused to go to the hospital and when I attempted contact with her PCP, I was told they aren't allowed to speak with me because I'm not on the "list." I asked my Mother about it and she denied it.
I'm just at my wit's end.
NONE of them are here to help. And this, after she told me how hurt and offended she felt when my one sister was made in charge of my Father's health care. He passed away July 16, 2014.
I just don't know what I can do. She is becoming more obstinate by the day and refuses to cooperate with her own health issues. She has most of her toes amputated, so she has to use a walker, which she tries to NOT do!
She has had a hip replacement and has the use of one hand!!! I am going to be 60 next month and have arthritis and Macular Degeneration. I can't even get to a Doctor, because none can be bothered to come and sit with her.
