I'm doing okay. Mom is there, just waiting for the inevitable. I stay overnight at her place in case there's a problem. My sleep cycle is shit but I've finally gotten off my ass and started walking again. Feels good. I walk in a local park that's really nice. How's things with you, my red haired stunner?
sounds a bit like we're in the same canoe- except it's my gma- i live with her now, she's 93 and has dementia- she's on no medication, but nonetheless, she still needs constant attention...i hear ya on the sleep cycle bit, i overslept the other morning, and she had fallen out of bed- (luckily me tucking her in like i do kept her from hitting the floor) i need a rail or a hospital bed, but as far as assistance goes, she doesn't qualify for any help (can you imagine) they say she makes too much money in her pension...yeah, right....
You might want to look at in-home hospice care. Medicare should cover it and it'll make things a little easier. My mom has it and it's been a big help. A nurse comes twice a week and a nurse practitioner comes once a month. They also have social workers that help out. My mom's okay mentally but physically she's slowly deteriorating. I'll note you the details later. My aunt (my mom's sister) stayed with us in the mid-80's when she started to develop Alzheimer's. We eventually got her into a home in Utah near my mom's sister, Ann. She died in around 1990 or so. It wasn't easy dealing with her. Hang in there, Jen.
