Dad is 77 and was recently diagnosed with Parkinsons. He has also had lifelong severe depression. And. . .my mother (his wife) is end stage Alzheimers. So he is grieving her soon-to-be loss, is suffering from the same waves of severe depression he has had his whole life, and is now seeing himself decline due to the Parkinsons. I'm overwhelmed with my mom and my 3 kids and a full time job, but I'm trying to help him too as much as possible. Every time I try to talk to him about making plans for his future, he just takes the "do nothing" approach. He says "I don't want to think about that right now." Or he says, "I'll think about it later." Well, that way of thinking put our family in absolute crises mode when my mom's Alzheimers got really severe, and I refuse to go down that road again. Any advice out there on how to talk to a depressed, grieving, elderly PD patient? I'd like to get him pinned down on his wishes for treatment should he become incapacitated, get POA in place, find an Assisted Living facility, etc.
