What to do?
My mom has had Parkinson's now for quite sometime. She was first diagnosed when she was just 32, and she is now 47. In just the last few years the disease has progressed very quickly. She first had to give up driving, and then a few months ago, had to retire early. Needless to say, it has been one heck of a year. Since she got the disease at such a young age, she is very far along as of right now. What I'm wondering is if anyone has any suggestions about what we can do for her as a family. I'm 24 years old and don't live with my parents any more. I'm an only child, so its just my dad that has to take care of her. He has had to retire so he is able to take care of her. I feel bad for my mom, because it is extremely hard to watch her suffer day in and day out, but I also feel bad for my dad because he is there everyday watching her and supporting her through it all. What can I do for either of my parents?
