Caregiving during pandemic

From Ottawa, ON

Thu Apr 22 2021


March 2020, moved in with my 84 year old mom to take care of her. Halted any Homecare services as PSWs were not wearing PPE.

It has been difficult, isolated and alone. Hospital appointments are always a battle as an essential caregiver to accompany my mom. I am always yoldni cannot go in with her. She had mobility issues and does not speak English. Finding vaccine appointment was another hurdle. Now the wait for second vaccine.

The exhaustion of caregiving and worrying about loved one have taken mental health toll. I am not certain I will recover
