After my post at Christmas re my mothers behaviour we now have a different situation. Ten days ago she was out with me fell on her 3 wheeler into the road, injuring her head arms ribs knee and foot. She is still hospitalised, I didn’t think she would make it and felt guilty as we fight and she bullies me. However at 91 she’s made a supreme effort and got walking, dressing and toilet by herself. They told me they are hoping to get her home tomorrow. I’ve spoken to her care manager who says she needs occupational assessment at home to see if she can manage. My problem is that this is going to rebound on me. She will become dependant on me for everything, says she doesn’t want carers. She won’t see that carers will let me have a break. Says she can look after her house by herself. I can’t cope with her messy parrot, hoover that’s so heavy I can’t budge it, she won’t get dressed before 11, which is fine but it stops her going to a day centre as they won’t pay because someone else could go for the whole day. My relatives say they feel sorry for me, I can’t get through to her that a cleaner just a couple hours a week to vacuum would make a difference. Now the seasonal cleaning is coming around and she will niggle until I do it half heartedly and she will call me stupid and so it goes on. I can’t cope with my own house I’m on anti depressants. I just want her to see sense. Forgive the rant
