One of the hard-core ways I use to help myself get rid of excess stuff is to imagine my poor daughter having to sift through it after I'm dead. It helps because I own all kinds of things that wouldn't be of the slightest interest to her. I don't want her to curse me for my hoarding ways once I'm gone!

I really hope you DO go home for a few days with your husband. I think it will make a world of difference in how you are feeling.

Glad you may have found some answers for the geese and chickens. I guess the one thing I know about dealing with the elderly is that they lose control over so much and just seem to fight to hold on to what they view as their control. Dealing with a darling old guy who just lost his driver's license. He is furious one minute and crying the next. Doctors hate to do that but, like I explained to the one I worked for, we drive on the same roads as these old people and it's your call whether they can cause accidents or not. We used to always tell him to fail them on the test. The kids so often have to resort to pulling battery cables or somehow disabling the car to keep them from driving. But the elderly hate being dependent on someone else for rides. That's just one example.

My cousin just put her dad in the nursing home in November. He's furious with her...but they live on a large sheep/cattle ranch and she doesn't live in the same house. He fell several times trying to shuffle out to the shop or the barn to see what was going on. She was telling me "What if he fell when it was 20 below?". Of course, my mom was angry. She asks me, "Do you think I could go out and stay with Jack and take care of him?" I couldn't believe she said it with a straight face. She doesn't even do most of the things to take care of herself. But I was patient and told her, "No. What if he fell? You couldn't get him up. What if you got stuck in the mud? No one within 10 miles to help you?" It helped her to think about it in a different light. I thought, later that night, maybe she is afraid that is what I am going to do to her. It really may not have been about him at all.

She often takes for granted all that I do for her on a daily basis. My leaving to go to Oregon for a week helped her to focus on that. She has been more appreciative since I came back.

I still think it's worth a shot to talk to the social worker. They are trained in all this and can really help you deal with some of the things that are going to come up. And, seriously, if you explain the 'living situation' they may do a home inspection and decide it is not in her best interest to live alone. That would help keep her either in rehab or make her see that she has to have some kind of regular helpers coming to check on her well-being. And, it does take the 'blame' off of you. She doesn't have to know that you have done it. Just explain the whole situation to them. You can't tell them anything they haven't heard before.

And it will be easier when the weather is nicer. Spring can't come soon enough. Good luck with it. I think we all have to deal with it some time in our life. Sometimes it just helps to vent! So feel free, whenever you need to do it.

She is not medicaid eligible, doesn't want anyone coming to her house; all animals are hers, I have none, got rid of mine 20 yrs ago when we retired at 55 and 53. She is very much set in here ways and thinks she can solve all the difficulties when she "gets back home". Meanwhile, there is no other person available to help her but hubby and I. No kids, no others. I have mentioned some of the social services to her but she doesn't think she needs them. Yeah, as long as she has us, right. LOL I am working on the critter situation, with her input. Thank you so much for all your advice! Sounds like you really have your hands full also. We took care of hubbys mom for 2 yrs with Alz. and that was also a difficult situation to deal with, was 20 yrs ago just before our retirement. Things have changed a lot since then.
Tomorrow I talk to a neighbor about the fowls, praying he will take them...free. He has a few already and may be glad to have them. The dog is a special challenge due to his blindness, he is however, a pretty easy to take care of little guy. Follows me around like a shadow since he can't see. Gets off trail, scent, and can't find his way back so has to be watched closely while outside. This snow is not his thing, nor mine! We have more coming, but is not expected to accum. thankfully! Hubby goes home on 12th and I am hoping to be able to go along, if just for a few days. She calls everyday and keeps me informed of all that goes on in rehab, and with her condition. Wears me down sometimes, but I just have to let it roll. Thanks again, and will keep you informed..

None of my business but if she is Medicaid eligible there is also a Medicaid "waiver" program that will help with some of the caregiver money, transportation and meals-on-wheels, if she is not too far out of town. Do you have power of attorney or medical power of attorney? The social worker can help you with all of that!

Okay, you answered some of my questions while I was doing my diatribe!! One thing I would strongly suggest is that you talk to the social worker at the rehab facility! They can give you all kinds of information much more personally related to her specific case! Especially with her age and not driving it may never be feasible for her to go back home. If you explain the situation they can help find aftercare help for her or make arrangements to move her to an assisted living facility? That would relieve some of the pressure off you! It would be "their fault". The local area council on aging, senior centers, etc. should have all kinds of options for caregivers - either getting live -in help or someone who comes on a regular basis.

But is she "there" or in a rehab facility? The dog situation is heart-breaking! You can pay bills once a month? Have the post office hold the mail? How many chicken & geese? You might be able to "farm them out" or get a local 4-H kid to take care of them? I live in rural Montana and there are usually neighbors who will help out. I know you guys have had a tough winter! Was in Bend and left the day before the record snow!

Sounds like you and your husband also have animals? Would it be possible to take them to your place until she is able to care for them?
You may have to get creative with your options, but they do exist! You have to do what's best for you!! I know it's very hard! My mom is 85 and lives right next door to me in a duplex! I had not planned on staying this long but also feel like I would be abandoning her if I moved away - and I own the property!

I am growing more resentful with each passing month and I feel bad for how often I am snappy with her. I have to tell myself "not my circus, not my monkeys" quite often when I think I should "rescue" her instead of letting her do things her way and for herself.

I don't have any answers for you! I go back and forth about my own situation. But you have your husband and life in another place to take care of. No other family who could help? No children or other siblings who could give you a break to take care of your own things?

another complication is that she no longer drives (81)
constantly says she will be able to come home soon and return to her life
as it was before..before two knee surgeries etc had a beautiful garden every year
That life is gone now, but she hasn't come to that realization.
It is a huge stress for me to try to solve, and I know that some of it I cannot solve and that is ok.

Problem of just going home is that there are animals to care for, and bills to pay, etc and she has no other helper. I am perplexed.
Dog is mostly blind, needs a rescue home or foster home...she just lost another dog a few months ago and so doesn't want to give this one up too.
Chickens and geese to feed, eggs etc haul feed.
I need to go do taxes etc., feel like I am re arranging the deck chairs on the titanic sometimes.
She worked very hard in choosing the things that went out before the surgery. I was just the "hauler away" person. Did laundry and things of that sort. Beginning to feel like I would be abandoning to leave now. Thanks for your communication, appreciate all input I can get.

Go home and come back in two months! No point in torturing yourself over her mess. It sounds as though you have already gone "above and beyond" in time and money and you are getting resentful and frustrated! Are you acting as her caregiver now? Sounds like you said she is in rehab so I am just assuming she is not even at the property? Or do I misunderstand the situation?

I can't imagine she wants you staying in a cold motor home away from your husband? I certainly understand about not tossing stuff for someone else. I wouldn't want anyone to do that with my stuff!

I would just say that I'm cold and tired and want to go home! You can reassure her you'll be back when she is ready to begin again. You have to take care of yourself first! If the resentment continues to grow it will just be harder to help when she needs you! Just my opinion! I'll keep you and your sister and your husband in my prayers!

The best cure for stressing is to count your blessings...and a long walk won't hurt either!

Never give up what you want the MOST for what you want at the MOMENT!

I am helping sis remove her hoard, however she just had back surgery and cannot lift for 2 mos. So now I am thinking I cannot rid anything w/o her saying so or else I will throw out the ONE thing that she wants to keep. She is in rehab and I am in an RV in very cold snowy Oregon snowstorm of 2+feet with animals to feed etc. Everything that could go wrong...has. Well, almost. Power outage for one week, RV no heat batteries died no cell batteries died; etc etc.
I am feeling weighed down and now the removal has halted. I have been doing this since Dec 26 and am so ready to go home...2 hrs away. Hubby has been back and forth every week keeping our place alive, spending a fortune (for us) in fuel to do so. Anyone have advice on how I can approach this removal without offending? All input appreciated, and prayers!!!

Feeling good about letting the plants freeze and not wasting energy transplanting them and trying to find a place in either my house or my mom's to keep them until May! Too much other stuff that's more important to me to do right now!

I know they are a lot of work. The worst part to me is trying to decide what something is worth and then have someone try to get it for a nickel. So it's not really the physical work to get ready and put one on, it's the emotional part about the worth of my junk. Does that make sense.

Garage sales are lots of work. I may have a sale next spring but right now it is much easier to donate.

emoticon I'm just throwing my paperwork in a box! Good for you. I chucked a bunch of magazines into the recycle bin without looking. That is huge progress for me!
