I have returned home after leaving a position with the federal government. My mother and father are in their 80's. Mom is in fair health, but dad is in failing health with Parkinson's which is very acute and Alzheimer's which has thankfully not progressed.
We just brought dad home from a rehab facility where he was dismissed for no improvement over a 3 week period.
I have meals coming in, visiting nurses and also some home aids through an agency.
My father in the last 6-8 weeks has become 100% wheelchair bound and even with making changes to the home he lives in it is just not enough.
My mother is in complete denial, and this frustrates me so much at times. I know she loves her hubby, but it is clouding her judgment at times.
As of this moment I have been up 5 times for potty issues. 3 urine with a urinal and 2 BM's, one in the bathroom and one in his briefs I have for him. It is nearly 4am and I have had no sleep, nor my 82 year old mother.
I feel so over my head. I have had to put business to the side, my personal life, and everything else. This can be very frustrating, but I don't have any regrets. I just wish I had some real idea as to what to do next.
I have folks come in, but there is a limit due to cost issues.
Any ideas or thoughts would be much appreciated.
