This is a strange question but we have now got continuting care for my Mum who is being cared for at home by my Dad who has 1 hr assistance 5 days a week to get Mum up and dressed and then a few longer sessions - if he is playing golf or going to Church. Dad feels it is Ok to leave Mum on her own for up to 1 hour to pop out to the super market or to go to a meeting but I don't. I have been called out from work to Mum by lifeline a few times and once in the evening - which is challenging as I'm a single Mum to 2 young children! Dad never seems to have his mobile on durring these emergencies and Mum has told me that she is scared on her own (speech is a problem for her) Dad does not want to change his ways and as we have CC now I can't really understand why. I know caring is really hard emotionally and physically and he must have time to himself but I am finding the current situation really stressful! If anyone has any ideas - if I'm over reacting or on how to change the situation I would be really grateful!
