Short version of my situation: Mum suffered a stroke late summer in England, I am the only child, dad has passed away some years ago, and I live in the USA. I am now living with mum as she was discharged from her rehab facility yesterday into my care. I am told there needs to be a 6 week care package put into place to assess her needs and for us to make a decision on her living arrangements longterm. But, as I’m sure you folks here are aware, there is a carer shortage… so now we are in a limbo of me caring for mum, 3000 miles away from my life in NY while we wait.
I am happy to do it, of course. But I am so frazzled and it’s only been about 24hrs since she came home!!! I’m still trying to remember who all the names are that I have been given, and what each person does. This is so far away from anything I have known before. It’s brain overload!
Just wanted to blurt really. Thank you if you read this
