Hello. I care for my mum who has Alzheimer's. It seems she is approaching the later stages from the results of recent cognitive testing. My mum has lived with my daughter and me since my dad died suddenly in 2006. We jointly own the property as tenants in common. It has not been easy and has caused a lot of difficulties, although we have tried our best. My daughter feels it has affected her life greatly, and her relationship with me. I did have a partner for 7 years but that ended. My most recent partner has just ended our relationship because he said he can't cope any longer with the situation here and the effect it is all having on me. At times I have felt completely torn between my daughter's needs and my mother's. I have also had feedback from both ex partners that they feel I have nothing left for them. We have had carers coming in just for the last 5 weeks and it is helping but I am struggling with isolation an lonlieness and I can't see myself being able to survive being trapped here for much longer. I work full time but when I am not at work I am here struggling with everthing. I have a brother but he has not seen our mum in 2 years. He hasn't sent any cards, or phoned her. He even missed her 80th birthday. I am trying to look into selling the property, using my power of attorney, so that we can use equity to fund a care home for my mum. I am worried that the money won't last but I don't know what else to do. My daughter is desperate for this to happen. I am taking anti-depressants just to keep going. But my mum realises and has been crying and begging me not to put her in a home. She says she wants to stay with me until she dies. It is all breaking my heart. And to lose my partner as well... I am left feeling sad and broken. I have no family support and no close friends to turn to. I have been a single parent to my daughter and alongside work and supporting my mum I seem to have had very little time to nurture other friendships or relationships. I have to pay £100 per hour for legal advice. I don't have this but I'm hoping if we can go ahead then the bill can be settled once the house is sold? I feel I am letting my mum down. She has been there for me all my life. I understand her needs but my strength is fading fast. I feel broken and don't know where to turn anymore. I would really appreciate any thoughts or advice at all. When my relationship ended 2 weeks ago I emailed my mum's care manager to say I felt in crisis but she hasn't replied. I do understand how busy they are ... but if I lose my health - mental or physical - they would have to step in anyway. I have reached the point where small tasks feel huge. Even trying to sort out respite. I just don't seem to find time for everything.
