Been a caregiver for over 30 years...my dad with Parkinson's who died at 76; my best friend with breast cancer died at 51. I'm struggling with caring for someone this age. I know on a slow decline. She refuses any help (my husband, mom, and I all reside in one house), will not think about placement, and declines hospice strenuously. Her balance is nearly gone..uses walker maybe 5%. Her COPD is going down hill again, no oxygen...you guessed refuses. She has chf, kidney disease, thyroid disease, spinal stenosis afib, and high blood pressure. Plus some dementia. I'm starting to come apart at the seams and trying to hold on to sanity...what there is left. I'm in need of coping skills to survive this journey. Any tips, tricks, ideas, suggestions or anything greatly appreciated.
