Subject: home health aides
Hi! I think some days that I have it so rough and then I read your messages! I have an 84 year old mother to care for. A home health aide comes in three days a week. This Is mostly a blessing. I get 2 hours off from the constant responsibility. BUT, the aide does not do all the things she has on her list. She spends most of her time sitting and talking to Ma. Am I just jealous? I get no time to sit and relax. The aide is being paid and I am doing her work most of the time. Some days I am just glad I get the two hours to go outside and walk around, other days it gets to me, like today.
So, I found this site. And now I am at least thankful that I am not the sole caregiver like I was.
