Mom is very resistant to having caregivers come over to her house. She thinks that she is fine and doesn’t understand why people need to be there with her. She will find any opportunity to let each of us [caregivers] know that we aren’t needed for our “shift”. Sometimes, she makes up her own opportunities, as you may have read about with our caregiver, Teresa. It comes as no surprise that she is at it again, this time using her ‘broken’ house an excuse.
My Uncle forwarded me this email from mom last night, asking if it was just another rouse from mom or if there was more to the story:
Our living room broke down and it is still a mess so you might not be able to come this week because it isn’t finished yet and there is nothing in the living room to sit on and other things are a mess.
Oh mom! I have to admit, I got a good chuckle out of that one. Mom sure is a sneaky one!!
