My mother is so depressed. She is constantly saying she wants to die. I try all sorts of little things to attempt to bring some joy into her life when I visit the nursing home. She has no quality of life now she is totally dependent. I feel powerless to make things better for her. The nursing home is the best I could find but has many shortcomings. Endless problems. I am tired of it all. How I wish she could be cared for by people who love her.
