both my parents are 86 years old, father is in pretty good shape, mom has to use a walker, but neither suffers from dementia. I help as much as I can, but I need a day once in a while to clear my head from their constant bickering and spend a lot of time with them, but can't always watch the same program over and over again, they get upset after 2 hrs. after watching TV and I want to leave, they never verbalize it, but I get the cold shoulder. Can anyone give me some advice for letting them know that I need time for myself and go out for a day with a friend without this negative attitude towards me? Any advise would be appreciated.
