Suzanne Forman

Care manager

I’m 61 y/o. Divorced w/3 grown children. Moved to San Diego in October of 2019 to help out my parents. My mother had mid-stage dementia. At the time my father was fairly independent. Since then he has declined pretty rapidly. He’s no longer able to walk more than a few feet. Cannot walk without assistance. He has a catheter permanently. She is losing her ability to speak. She cannot find her words. It became more than I could handle, so I hired a live-in caregiver and I now manage their needs. I handle their finances, Dr appointments, house maintenance, etc. Even though I don’t live there, it’s still a lot. Probably a third of my time is spent managing their needs.
