my mum who is blind and deaf lives on her own, she is a bit unsteady on her feet but has been coping reasonably well and always has insisted that she doesn’t want outside help.
Myself and my sister would go when needed and help out with anything that she couldn’t do.
Last week she had a fall and hurt her leg, she was in hospital for a day.
Now she is home she cannot get up the stairs, we have brought her bed down and bought a commode.
Before the virus a neighbour did her shopping but now my husband does and we take it at the weekend.
Myself and my sister both come in the vulnerable category, my sister is self isolating so everything is now left up to me.
I managed to get her to accept crisis care for 5 days which is up today, I have now been told she will have to pay for anymore care workers to come in. She has no savings and no extra money to pay for care.
She still cannot get up the stairs and I doubt very much she will ever get up them again.
Can someone please advise me what I can do, I am at my wits end, she is already angry with me for bringing in the crisis care team, but I cannot look after her full time.
