Hi everyone I haven't posted here very often but I need someone to talk to! I'm mum's carer. I deal with her finances, fill in all sorts of forms for her, sort out & collect her medication, deal with any mail, insurances, household problems (leaks, central heating) etc, etc. I don't want mum to worry about things so I try to deal with all sorts. She attends a wonderful day centre 5 days a week. Not Tuesdays tho as I take her shopping every week which she really enjoys. It can be quite a strain on me at times with her jumping queues and emptying her purse out on checkout desks so they can take the correct money but it's ok really as she always says how much shes enjoyed her day & thanks me constantly for taking her out & after all mum has been there for me when I've needed her, bless . I use to have her to dinner on Sundays too but lately she has said she prefers to stay at home on Sunday as it's her only day she has at home. I phone her 3-4 times daily to check on her & I know shes less confused at home.
