NOW HEAR THIS, I AM SUPER WOMAN!
At least I thought so...........but daughter, doctor, neighbors, friends, husband, others, have decided to set me straight. They keep telling me I don't have the training to take care of my mother with Alzheimers.
The doctor used this term for the first time in our last conversation.
She has a new medication that might help somewhat with memory problems. In the last few weeks Mom has mentally slowed down. Sometimes I think she has a little difficulty deciding just who I am (sometimes I wonder who I am too!).
A facility with trained staff sounds wonderful for her but it doesn't help my guilt feelings for giving up.
I hope I know when the time is right to do this change. Some one out there who has made this decision.......Please Help!
