Ron -
I am so sorry to hear about your dad. It is sadly ironic that many of us who work in caregiving find ourselves in need of care for our parents, only to face some difficulties in in getting our parents the care they need. I wanted to let you know you are not alone. I am the COO at the Caregiver Action Network (formerly known as the National Family Caregivers Association)and I have experienced challenges getting my parents to accept help. I knew where to turn for help - I turned right to Care.com! But despite some serious health issues, I still cannot get my father to agree to allow help in the house. Thank you for sharing your personal experiences at this time of grieving. If we all share what we learn, together we will be able to get help to more caregivers. Take Care!

Care For The Elderly

This is really a benevolence to which will surely benifitte4d you in your old ages. TO work for the others is giving inspiration to me also. Thank you for sharing such a good suggestion to work for the elders which will pay off once in life.
