Help! I'm an Only Child and Caregiver!!!
I'm the only natural child of my 85 and 87 year old parents. I promised them that I would care for them at home as long as I were able. My health has rapidly declined, and I look much older than my 50 years. I had to quit my job two years ago to care for their physical needs, and they had made no preparations for this time of their lives. My doctors are concerned about my health after developing seizures, near stroke blood pressure levels, and suicidal ideologies. Neither parent wants to transition to assisted living, and one refuses to go. How must I go about making them more comfortable about this change which is really necessary?
