I'm so worn down and stressed out from looking after Dad for the past three years that I really need some relief, as does my husband. I'd like to have Dad hire a caregiver to take him on some outings so that we wouldn't have to be his only source of transportation for recreational outings, lunch out, and so on. However, I know from past experience that Dad will refuse to do that and will sit home indefinitely rather than spend the money. Should I make the suggestion anyway and back it up by scaling back on our trips out with him? I don't want to be unkind; I just want a break from some of the responsibilities.
