Caring Daughter Seeks Grant Funding To Transport Disabled Parents To Doctors
by Rhonda Bellamy
(Hesperia, CA, USA)
I am an only daughter caring for my disabled parents.
I am 45 years old and have one daughter. I am in a relationship, but not married.
I have three brothers who provide no help or support.
My mom is 74. She suffered a stroke 9-1/2 years ago. It left her unable to care for herself. She needs total care, is bedridden and also has Alzheimer's. She uses a wheelchair since she cannot walk.
My dad is 75 years old and suffers from Parkinson's and dementia. My dad has been suffering with his problems now a little over three years.
Both of my parents have high blood pressure and diabetes.
I am unable to work because I have no family support with my parents. I am the sole caregiver for them.
I am without transportation due to a recent car accident that totaled my car. As a result, I'm unable to get my parents to medical appointments.
I receive unemployment and my parents both receive social security.
I have tried to get help from different types of organization and nothing has come about from that.
I have even tried to turn to family for help and have gotten nothing although some have suggested that I put my parents in a nursing home.
Yes it gets hard sometimes and even overwhelming but to put them in a nursing home is not something I would even consider doing.
I am looking for someone or a organization that can fund me with a grant to get some type of transportation for my parents to go to medical appointments.
