I took care of my mom for 4 years, moved back to FLa to do it. I still don't know if it was good or bad, good for her, bad for me I can tell you that. she was a partially paralyzed stroke patient. I got a lady in to bathe her, I took her to docs, etc. But I left my whole life in N.Ga and now I'm that much older and it's hard to get going again. She was in a nursing home for a while but was so unhappy I couldn't stand it.
There are senior services most places who you can call but you have to get in touch with them. You could probably find them online. Type in Senior Help and the name of the city and see what comes up, get in touch with them, ask what they can do to help. Abuse is never tolerated and they will send somebody to check out your mom's condition.
I did find that writing about it at night after a long day of caregiving was a help to me,(I didn't publish it, just wrote it all out, vented on paper.) I also stayed active and got into line dancing a couple afternoons a week when somebody else was with her. It kept me sane as I was in touch with people my own age, music and happy activity. If you're going to take care of her yourself, you have to think of your own needs also even for short periods of time.
Good luck and hope this will give you some ideas that help. I think if I did it over again I would have her come up and live at my house with me, that way I wouldn't have lost touch with friends and stayed active up here. It does mean putting in handicap toilet and bars on the tub so there's some cost involved but would be worth it to know she's well cared for and you keep part of your life the same.
