She has mild Parkinson’s and is able to do quite a bit for herself. At times, she insists on wearing clothes that she had trouble putting on or taking off. Which means needing help every time she uses the bathroom. I am not going to dress her because I don’t want her to become dependent on someone constantly doing for her when she can do it. DH and I are in agreement on this. She gets mad at me if she wears something, like leggings, and I don’t help her pull them on. I will put her clothes on, over her feet and pull up to her knees because she has trouble in that area. She can do the rest. I also put on her shoes and socks for her because she can’t.
Therapist say let her do as much as she can. They also said her clothes should be easy on easy off for her.
Shes mad at me today because of this.
Am I wrong to make her do what I know she can do?
