My house is a disaster, I have appointments and a wedding party to go to today… and trying to take over paying my grandma’s bills! This is a lot of work. Getting all the info, setting up the online accounts, faxing the DPOA info in to them. Setting up online accounts for the checking accounts she has and figuring out if there’s enough money to pay the bills is not a quick process, either! It’s not all going to happen in a day, that’s for sure.
One of our new caregivers has already started working for us. She came yesterday morning and helped with breakfast, dressing, showering, pet care, etc. Today she is coming to watch my grandpa while my mom takes grandma to the doctor.
Hopefully soon this will all just be part of the routine.
