My name is Tammy and I live in Tn. We take care of my in-laws. My hubby is their POA. It is a very stressful job as I'm sure most of you know. The doctor put my MIl in the nursing home almost 3 years ago in May. She has demintia. My FIL followed in June with a massive stroke. They are in the same room together but sometimes this is a very bad idea.
My DH's sister is very faithful about visiting every week. One of his brothers is now follow suit. The problem is that his other brother and sister think thier mother is faking this. They don't believe their mom or dad have any problems!!! I don't know how you fake Althimzers do you? Needless to say this has caused a very big rift in the family with siblings not speaking!!
I am so over this but since I am an inlaw it is not my place to speak out about how stupid they are being.
I just needed to vent!!
