Feeling Guilty While Caring for an Aging Loved One? You're Not Alone.

Mom’s calling from upstairs again. For goodness’ sakes, I was just up there! Now she needs help getting to the bathroom? Why didn’t she tell me a minute ago?

She was up half the night. I got no sleep. I’m late getting the kids ready for their swimming lessons, the house is a mess, there’s no one else to help and no one even had breakfast today. And with the memory problems and the doctor appointments?

I can’t keep doing this. Lord knows we can’t afford to bring in a home nurse. And Mom won’t hear of it anyway. She’ll say she doesn’t want some stranger taking of her. Why won’t she at least consider moving to a senior home?
