Hi, Just a question to you caregivers out there. How many of you have family within a few miles of you and recieve no help from them?I care for my mother and I have a Brother and Sister inlaw within walking distance. We are lucky if he stops over for a little visit. I do think he feels all her needs are being met. And hes right they are I am doing everything. My question to you all is should I call and ask right out for help. I keep thinking he and my sister inlaw will one day wake up and see that I can use a helping hand. Or just a day to spend alone with my husband that is quite ill. will they wake up or should I call and wake them up. Love D
