I would like to know how the home care system generally works. Having never known anyone who has been through this process, I want to make sure everything will be done properly as well as what to expect. I don't need every detail but a simple step by step process. Like what I have to do as a daughter, what my mom as to do as a patient, and what the care service will be doing to get everything set up.

Someone had mentioned that I can assist my mother to get a medical loan to cover some of the costs of assisted living since it had become a burden on my brothers and I to juggle everything and make sure she is still looked after. My money is tied up with bills, kids, and a mortgage, my younger brother is still paying off college debts, and my older brother has a family of his own. We can all chip in but we want to make sure she gets the best care if this is an option. Does anyone know the process of getting a medical loan for someone who has Dementia?

I hate to say this but my mother's mental health has gotten worse over the last few months and it has gotten to the point where I am becoming very frustrated. I snapped at her the other day and now I feel awful. She doesn't really even remember what happened but she was in tears over the ordeal. I feel a constant pressure to remember things for her while trying to remember my own things and my own children's things. I feel as if I have another child on my plate. I don't want to get like this. Is there a way to handle the frustration without taking it out on her? I know this is not her fault.
