Hi. I care for mum with dementia and dad with macular degeneration. I do all for my mum. Dad is unable and a bit unwilling to take any responsibility. I live with them but other siblings are useless. "If you need anything...." Yeah, sure. I have no social life and friends are long gone. The responsibility is just so overwhelming. Home help are coming out tomorrow to assess for lunchtime assistance as i work. I just know she won't go for it. She also has her first day at day club Tuesday and hope to god she takes to it. Her physical health is getting worse. I'm now off work with stress and on antidepressants. Is there any light at the tunnel? The sheer lonliness of it all is awful. I read this post back and think " is this what I've become"
