I have a good friend who is caring for her father. He forbids her to have a life and will not let her do anything outside the home.
he is 93 y.o. very, very stubborn man. he barely lets my friend go out and have somewhat of life of her own. he is in his house most of the time, but chooses to be there. does NOT want to go to a NH. and refuses to let an outside source come in to check up on him during the day. my friend cooks, cleans, helps him bathe, does laundry....has always taken good care of him. he refuses to give in and let her take a break from him once in a while.
she is at the end of her rope....what can she do?
