He has PD, and is very bossy and very depressed. I get nowhere with discussions. He has difficulty remembering instructions. He wants constant attention; if I try to do something he seems to resent it because I'm not focused on him. He's very fearful of everything; it's winter and we haven't been outside for weeks. I sprained my ankle in Oct and it's taking forever to get better. I get angry because I'm in pain and he wants me to care for him. Geriatric care manager has said he needs to be in assisted living but our physician says "no, he will die there".
I have a helper come in 3 days a week for 4 hours but she has had difficulty coming due to the weather. Our son and daughter-in-law live with us and help but can't do too much and certainly can't bathe him.
