I'm fed up of worrying - I'm sure I'm not the only one. I finally told my Ghost Sister to take a running jump after she rang and frightened our poor mother to bits, screeching about the announcement they had 'just' made (this was yesterday) about people with respiratory conditions like asthma being ...
I'm in a very similar situation. My 83 year old mum has breast cancer and is in the early stages of dementia. She does fairly well but can't prepare herself a hot meal and needs 'chivvying' for self care and such like. We are both in the dreaded high risk category. I do an online shop for her - when...
Thanks for your support. I don't believe Mum has had a needs assessment - I certainly haven't had a carers assessment. It isn't that I mind looking after Mum as such it's my lazy what-not of a sister who thinks 'caring' involves turning up under duress, sitting on her bum with only the occasional tr...
Does anyone mind if I have a good, old fashioned rant??? Just to give you some background... my mum is in the early to mid stages of Alzheimers. She's managing well by and large, sometimes gets us mixed up and can't remember characters on the TV but she's holding it together. She fell badly last Aug...
Thank you for your support everyone. I'm trying not to be too much of a helicopter and encouraging Mum to do for herself and she does seem to be picking up. I think the problem to a certain extent is that while in hospital everything was done for her and she thinks she has forgotten everything. Now ...
Bowlingbun My Mum has always looked after me and is a great Mum she had me very young bless her, it's just been me and her. She has Bipolar disorder and gets in catatonic like states too. So she has high care needs. Her own mothers not very supportive so I didn't want her to be left at her mercy. I...
One of Mum's reablement support workers noticed that Mum had a large dimple in her right breast on Monday. I wondered if she had just laid funny in bed and asked my GS if she would get the evening shift to have a look and see if it had gone. Of course GS just didn't bother so we were none the wiser ...
Mum has 'reablement' carers coming in. They are meant to encourage her to do what she used to do before the fall and the hip replacement. Mum has a bit of Stockholm Syndrome and is struggling to adapt to the outside world. She's got used to stuff being brought to her etc and now she's being encourag...
It is LONG overdue to be honest. Our family motto seems to be 'least said, soonest mended'. :roll: My nickname as a child was Vesuvius because I had such a temper and I was never one for a controlled explosion unfortunately. I'm nervous of letting rip once I start and all sorts of ancient history wi...
I'm sorry you are having such a struggle. I can really sympathise. You have to wonder sometimes why it all has to be so flipping hard. I'm constantly making lists - this needs doing, that needs ordering, have I arranged for this to be done - it messes with your head in the worst way. It is too easy ...
