  • I'm a widower taking care of my 92 year old mother.  I worry about my health, both mentally and physically.  I have no assistance with daily care of my mom. So I am unable to get out and be around people etc. My family has NO idea about the strain it puts on me, and I do my best not to show it.  And, no, there are no family members close enough and willing to assist me. Any suggestions for someone in my situation?
