I have PPMS and I am a full time carer for my partner. She is diagnosed with Dementia. Although I feel I can cope with the running of the home and daily chores . I feel I need a break from time to time just to look after myself and to get back to normality. She has two sons (50 ish) who both live 4 miles away. I just feel they could do a lot more to help but I don
t know how it would be best to approach them for help. I dont think I should have to ask in the first place as they should be offering to help in some way. It`s not like they live miles away. To me it comes across as selfish. Yes they both have family to consider but this is your Mother ffs… She has helped them out in the past without hesitation. So where are they ?
One of their partners works for CAB. She knows the system inside out. Getting any info from her is like getting blood out of a stone. She will not offer any advice unless you go cap in hand.
Any help appreciated.
