This Week's Carenote - 09/11/12

I am caring for my mother. I am doing it alone. It has been so hard. She was always a difficult, controlling, demanding person. I have been told to force her into assisted living by friends. She actually could afford assistance, but refuses to pay someone else. She alienates medical help with the constant criticizing. I am at the end of my rope. Tried a caregiver support group and no one in it was a caregiver! It is so frustrating and some days I just feel like I can't go on. I have tried calling the church. I have contacted the Department of Aging; got four hours of respite every three months. There are no friends or relatives to help out.
