I am a Live-in Caregiver for my father who has Parkinson's. What can I expect as he progresses?
I live with my 81yo father who has Parkinson's. I am retired on disability due to previous mental health issues that are stabilized/healed. My father asked me to not go back to work as long as he needs care. We are able to provide with our income. What can I expect as he progresses? He no longer drives nor is left alone for long. I have support from my grown children to stay with him when I need to run errands, etc. He still bathes and grooms himself and walks with a cane and/or walker. I handle pretty much everything else (running the home, meals, laundry, errands, etc.). When, if ever, will it be time to get home health care or transition to assisted living. Trying not to be afraid of the future and plan ahead as much as possible.
