I'm new to caregiving...looking for some help
My mom was diagnosed two year's ago with Alzheimer's - moderate stage. She moved in with me in November, 2004. My mom was always a very independent, vibrant woman and now all she wants to do is sit in her chair and watch TV. I can't get her interested in anything. She crocheted all her life and will not even look at it. I work full time (home office) and have a caregiver here during the day, but my mom refuses to accept any personal care help from her; she only wants me. I am frustrated, depressed and feeling very sorry for her. I have two sisters that are basically useless. I know I need help...do any of you go to support groups, or do you find this site enough help?
