Im the maine caregiver for an 87 y.o. woman with alot of health issiues, her 50 y.o. daughter releaves me two days a week. I work 90 hours straight. The daughter and I had a falling out last week, she basicly feels I dont do enuogh. I cant even begin to list my job duties but theres alot, it was a real slap in the face, her older brother hierd me and always thanks me for what i do not to mention I got a raise last week. The problem is ever since our falling out louise [ the lady name] has been acting different towards me she wont listen, gets up by her self ,it seems her daughter must have said some things to her about our issiue, its like a slap in the face I hate to bother the brother on vacation about it , Im so mad how should I handle this because I love my job very much.

very inspiring thank you enjoyed reading

Hi, I am the sole caregiver for my 84 yo mother with Dimentia and severe Arthritis....In September it will be 8 ys I am doing this ALONE. I have no family that is willing or able to help..In that spirit I moved to another state with her were the home costs were much lower...this has backfired on my cuz I have left my support group behind and basically am so burnt out now I dont even know how to make new friends anymore....Adult diaper issues dont make for good conversation I guess....To get out with mom and do things has become increasing diffucult and I am just plain tired and need a day off....Over these 8 years I have only had maybe 3 or 4 weekends off and it has been at least 3 years since the last one....We cannot afford to pay a for the respite care I so desperately need...that is not covered by healthcare. I am afraid I am at a breaking point and have noticed I am not caring for her properly...just the little things, but that guilt is compounded my burnout.... I am so frustrated that there is no help for me, because if it wasn't for me the state would be completely & financially responsible for her the last 8 yrs... that is way more expensive than an occasional break for me...all i get is someone 3 hrs a week...can't do much in 3 hours..and actually usually dont go anywhere then cause I enjoy the company if it wasnt for her I would have no one to talk to, stuck up here in the house 24/7!!...I don't know what to do....I am so tired of it rite now!!!! Thanks for letting me vent!!!

I'm lyn from the Philippines, I 'm currently care giving my 83 yr old dad and 73 yr old mom. My dad has a prostate cancer fortunately he is still strong he still can move he choose to eat healthy food now, my mom has diabetes and arthritis she has daily maintenance and as of now luckily it is controlled, reading different health books really help me. My main task is preparing food, laundry, cleaning the house, medicine monitoring. Sometimes I feel so helpless and impatient if my parents are arguing over small things, sometimes I'm guilty if they are severely sick but I know it's not my fault. We prayed every night for thanksgiving and healing. What annoys me sometimes if my siblings complaining for their financial contribution and it pressured me to find part time work but i know it's not possible while i'm doing care giving full time. Hope I'm lucky to work abroad as accounting staff and help for expenses and salary for a relative to replace me in care giving. Only if it is God's will.

my godly friend Miss Jaz, (42 yr old, single) is giving me inputs in care giving, she is currently working as a licensed nutritionist/dietitian, she is a prayerful,gentle, sweet person..she had undergone training in care giving for a possible career i just hope she will find one..it's free to dream.

thanks for this site it's helpful and uplifting.

Good place to come in and talk about caregiving ,Thank's for venting or letting us vent here!!
