We are Starting the Process

My 85 year old mom lives with us and has for about a year now. This is not working. My health is suffering due to stress. I just spent a week in the hospital and am having increased health issues.


I do have siblings but they "can't" take her in for one reason or another so now we are contacting state agencies to see what our options are and we are hoping we can make other living arrangements for her.

This is a matter of survival.

Hi again, my friend. Read the new comments submitted. Find it by clicking on What's New in the column om the right. The one called "fighting". They mentioned something called elder foster care. Maybe you could find that in your area?? You take care today. I'll be sending you good thoughts.

Well the places we are applying to have a waiting list of 18-24 months. Who knows what kind of shape she'll be in by then, If she isn't able to live on her own by that time then we would have to start the process for assisted living. That means more waiting. So basically it looks like we're stuck.

I understand the stress. We all need to do what we think is right. Your health is important. I hope you can get through this okay. Post what info you have on what kind of help you can get for her. I am curious. You take care and take it one day at a time.
