Q&A From Family Caregivers

Learn from the experience of other caregivers, ask questions, or offer your own tips and advice on AgingCare’s Caregiver Forum.
Q: Mom took good care of her parents & my dad when they were all old & sick. Now it’s my turn to care for mom but I hate it…
Am I a bad daughter???? Mom is physically ok and not ready for memory care. It just scares me that mom will live to be a 100.
Q: When is it time to get help at home?
My loved one seems good one day then confused the next. I’m not sure how she will take it if someone comes to help.
Q: Should two parents, both with dementia, live together?
Both of them are in early-moderate stages of their respective types of dementia. Is it best for them to stay together even though Dad (alone) could be in a State-run VA facility?
Q: Stepmother will not arrange care. What should I do?
When she is in the hospital, Dad with dementia cannot stay home alone. She refuses to get in home care and she will not have him in a nursing home. APS said I cannot force her to get care. This is wearing me out.
