My dad has only 1 caregiver. She's been with him 29 yrs. She works 7 days a week! He will NOT let anyone else come in to give her a break. She originally was his housekeeper. She is so devoted that she has undertaken all of his needs--she showers him, cuts his hair, shaves him, clips his nails, makes his food, oversees his medication, keeps the house clean. She's superhuman. The problem--shes working 7 days a week. She needs a break. In addition, a few times a year she needs to leave for 2 weeks to visit her family. My Dad refuses to let anyone else care for him. The couple of aides we have tried have quit, due to his abusive behavior. I am unwilling and unable to fill his caregiver's shoes. We must have backup but how to convince him?
