This Alzheimer's caregiver is 80 years old, and cares for his wife. Am I asking to much to expect some relief from her only daughter?...By Bob DeMarco
Alzheimer's Reading Room
|Insight and Advice|
I'm not sure I am at the proper place to post but here goes! My wife has Alzheimers she is 74 and I am 80.
We have daily daycare person(s) but after 5 I look out for her until 8:30 the next morning.
My problem is that I get no help from her only daughter who lives only 60 miles away.
Every 2 weeks she comes to see her mother (4 hrs at the most) but never volunters to stay over night, and neither does she offer to give me a break and take her home with her for several days on the weekend.
I'm so frustrated with her we have had words over it. Her mother is in the advance stage(s) of Alzheimers.
Am I asking to much to expect some relief from her only daughter?
