I live in Canada, caring for 2 elderly parents, and have come to the point that I need help with caring for them. I am all round burnt out, mentally, emotionally, spiritually which all leads to physical burn out. I am new to this process of caring for the elderly, and am not well prepared, even though I thought it would be ezpz, to care for your own parents. I just didn't know how their behavior would impact me, and now I do.
Is anyone here familiar with in home care in Canada? I would love some referrals for hire? I am not sure what I need help with.... But for now, it's the meals that are driving me nuts, that's for sure. They take up the best part of my day. I guess I would need someone to come in daily to make them lunch, a couple of hours/day with clean up.
I have never been one to ask for help with anything, but here I am.
