Caring for aging parents is a challenge. Look for small moments of joy and honor the relationship you had before the decline, says Katy Butler, author of "The Art of Dying Well." https://n.pr/2GaLj9b
I’m going through this now...its difficult at best. I keep in mind all my Mother did for us as we grew up and it’s my way of repaying her for those sacrifices she made.
I suspect there are many of us needing care who are exactly the ones who deeply dreaded ever being a burden on anyone.
Keep a spot in your thinking open to the idea that the person you are helping would rather be helping you.
