Three Years I Took Care of my Mom who has Cancer, Arthritis, COPD, and Dementia with No Help from Siblings at all
(West Jordan Utah)
Took care of my mom for three years...I moved her in with my family and I.
I have 2 brothers and 1 sister, they did not help, seldom came to visit even. Now my brother who is the oldest and lives in Idaho decides he's all over everything.
He wanted to know if there's any money. We had money, I used it for her care, that is what it was for.
HE knows nothing of her situation. I would have loved him to get more involved when she was alive. I needed his help on numerous issues. HE would never call me back.
But now he just wants to know if there's any money for him. It made me so damn mad. When she moved in here she had money. She told me to put it in the bank account and use it for her... which I did, almost all of it.
She was well taken care of, thanks to my husband and children that helped, our home and our lives were completely changed.
Anyone of you that has taken care of an elderly parent with all the other things that come along with it can quite agree with me. It's tough and expensive.
My siblings make me so mad. I think my brothers and sister have no business at all even coming to ask my financial situation.
And my brother even wants to get an attorney and investigate what I spent on my mom when she was here, it makes me so mad. Clearly they're all about the money that is so obvious... I do not need this I'm exhausted
