Taking Care of 96 Year Old Mother and 87 Year Old Mother in Law
Both my mother and Mother in Law cannot walk without walker. Mother in law can barely walk 15 ft. Both are from India and absolutely vegetarian. They do not eat meat, eggs, fish. They have to have five times a day different course such as Morning Tea with snack, Lunch, Fruits and milk, after noon tea with snacks and Dinner. Both of them have congenial heart failure, arthritis and takes at least more than 20 tablets a day.
They cannot take bath by themselves. They have to take bath every day as per Indian Philosophy.
We virtually cannot go out as they are scared to stay alone in night.
We take care for them for 6 months and then our siblings take care for 6 months.
These six months are very stressful and me and my wife often shouts at each other.
I am 75 and my wife is 70.
We are tired and see no way out.
