I wasn't thinking so much about a "professional" carer, more about if there is a possibility that she could be given a holiday in some pleasant Old Folk's Home for a few weeks - that would be a break for you too.
Her insurance doesn't cover things like that.
I really admire the way you take care of your mother.
You have to remember to take care of yourself first because you're no good to her if you are not well.
Check with your local Hospice they offer this service and take any kind of insurance, I'm pretty sure. That should be their motto...Hospice, not just a place to die but to live!!! Sorry if you did not find that funny as I am nervous to talk to you.
Here's hoping for a new beginning! **cheers**
Oh yea there are memory games online, I think. I've seen them advertised. Maybe that would help?
Almost 7,000,000 results. Lumosity is the one I saw advertised. https://www.google.com/search?q=memory+games&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8
