This Week's Carenote - 02/26/13

I am emotionally spent caring for my mom with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s, dealing with my recently deceased dad's estate, family conflict and, most of all, the ongoing task of finding good help. Since my dad became ill three years ago, we have been through 11 home health aides, private hire and through agencies. My dilemma is that most think this is a TV watching job. I am at my mom's house two days per week to offset expenses and my sister is there on weekends. Watching my mom decline is heart wrenching. Any advice?
