My dad died in May, he suffered from Dementia. My mom sits & does very little all day. I have enrolled her in an adult daycare once a week (that is all she will go) & she goes to a small senior group once a week at our church. She depends on me for everything. She will not drive & won't even go to church unless I go although there are others who would take her. She is afraid to go outside for fear of falling even though my brother pays for a monitoring device which she wears 24/7. I feel so guilty but I feel I have to back off & not live her life for her. Sometimes I feel like she died with our father. She will not even write her own checks & feels that since I was appointed guardian for her I should do everything.
