Hi Pushpa

It's a difficult one isn't it - trying to combine work and caring ? Before I moved in with my Mum I found it hard enough to do both and I was only living within 2 miles of her - I would think that being in different cities makes it almost impossible.

I know that you and your Mum do not want for her to have to go into a Care Home, but have you thought of either live-in Care workers or an Assisted Living situation ?

Live in care workers can work out cheaper than a care home with the added benefit that your caree can stay in her own home with full-time care and company. Have a look here www.careathometoday.co.uk. It might be something worth considering.
