I am 55 years old and the caregiver to my 81 year old Mother. She had Alaheimer's. My mother was abandoned at the court house last Dec. 21/2006 by my sister. She was 87 lbs and was non responsive to verbal communication. My Sister had been taking care of mom for 2 � years. Day care five days a week and two week vacations every year with short trips throughout. A fight started over money between my brother and my sister. Then adult protection was call in due to my sister tying mom to the bed and then leaving the home. She had lost thirty pounds had a broken hip and was on 500mg of depicote, 10 mg of zyprexa with a little ativan on the side.The court was going to take mom away for her and place her in a Home. My sister who was a nurse was appalled at the thought that they were asking me to step up as guardian. She said very hurtful thing about me in court. The court gave Guardianship to me. I quite my job and now have mom full time no day care. No family support form the siblings there are five of us. My sister the nurse will not even visit her mom. She stated to the court I would kill her mother.She truly hates me for taking mom. She is now off depicote gained 25lbs is on new Alzheimers medication and talking again. It has been a year now she is doing great but I am tired of these four walls. I feel so alone and write poems to relive the pressure. I don�t know why but having her here make me miss my family so much. They do not have much to do with her..they are to busy,mad or to far away.
