A Typical Morning for CareGiver Guy

My alarm clock wakes me up at 4:45 Monday thru Friday but it's been a difficult night. Mom woke up 4 to 5 times last night to go to the bathroom. She can still walk to the bathroom with the help of her "walker"; if she remembers to use her walker. She gets real "Independent" on me and her CareGivers and just refuses to use her "walker." I have place labels on her "walker" to "Always Use Your Walker".

Every morning, I set the table with her oatmeal breakfast, juice and her medication. Her caregiver comes in Monday thru Friday at 7AM. Mom woke up early this morning and we get into this discussion on Why She Needs a Caregiver? She's complaining that she doesn't need a caregiver. Thank God the CareGiver finally arrives at 7AM. I had to tell the CareGiver that mom is hiding her purse in the second bedroom closet. I'm still looking for her watch, the kitchen spoons. and my keys.
