My son is 15 miles away. Used to be out of county, created endless problems. Every round trip for you will be 100 miles, that's too far and too long if there is a crisis. What will happen when you can't drive any more? Have you thought about private rental, maybe with someone she knows, nearer to ho...
Hi Marie, are you getting lots of help?
I know it may sound odd, but I struggled to work out what I wanted to do, not could do, but what would really please me? I'd been doing things for others the real me had been buried.
My mum was always saying she could manage without carers but she couldn't. When I had major surgery, she finally realised shouldn't.

Somehow, she would have to manage. Suitable support would have to be arranged. There would be no choice. Mu...
Why feel guilty when you've been caring for so long???
You have done more than enough already. You have a right to a life of your own, to realising your dreams.
Welcome, my mum was a hoarder, but in her case she put things away "safely" in a plastic bag, then another plastic bag to keep that one clean, then labelled it and put it away. in one of many chests of drawers, sideboards, blanket boxes, wardrobes... It took a year for me and my two sons to empty it...
