Balancing the demands of my job and caring for my Mum

Hello - before I explain my situation its important you understand that I want to be my Mums carer, to me this is my priority.

However, I work three days a week whilst I am my Mums main carer. Its getting increasingly difficult to focus and concentrate in work because I am so tired and worried about my Mum's health. The appointments and telephone calls with Dr, nurses and hospitals are non stop and I am back and forth to Mums house sometimes several times a day to help with meals, medication, etc.

How do those of you that work - balance home life and work life, so that you dont feel guilty about letting colleagues down. What adaptions have you agreed with your employer?

Thanks. xx
