I thought you might find something of use on how to cope with a parent who resists help.
I recently attended an event that discussed the role of Geriatric Care Manager. If you are struggling and need some support, this is an emerging group of care professionals specifically focused on serving those that need help – both the individual and the families of that individual. To learn more you can visit the association: National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers
They also offer a search to allow you to find a list of these professionals in your home town. Apologies to my international readers – this is only in the U.S. but I would guess you have some similar groups emerging in your country.
I’m looking forward to the day when I have a little more clarity and success in how to help my parents. Investigated.
