I can sympathize and it is unfair. I care for my mom who has MS.She is 63 yo. I get some help from my brother who lives about 1 hour away. He does the best he can but he has his own problems. I have a husband and two teenagers..they help, but I do almost everything. I am in the middle of them all. I think most people would rather not deal with it. Out of sight out of mind. I have a friend who had the same situation...her siblings (3 of them) did nothing to help with their dad.She ran the whole show. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can talk more. Best to you and God Bless.: I'M A SINGLE,UNEMPLOYED LADY, AGE 57, WHO IS LEFT WITH THE ENTIRE LOAD OF LOOKING AFTER MY 82 YEAR OLD PARENT,WHILE THE REST OF THE FAMILY WHO LIVES JUST 50 MILES AWAY, STAY AWAY AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE AND DON'T ATTEMPT TO CONTRIBUTE MONETARILY OR TIMEWISE TO THE SITUATION. THEY ALL HAVE MONEY AND COULD HELP OUT AT LEAST UNTIL I AM ABLE TO GET SOMEKIND OF JOB. I'M WONDERING HOW I AM GOING TO SURVIVE AND SUPPORT MYSELF
: WHILE CARRYING THE FULL LOAD OF CAREGIVING. DOES ANYONE
: HAVE AN OPINION ABOUT THE FAIRNESS OR UNFAIRNESS HERE?
