I found this article in the Atlantic “What Aging Parents want From their Kids”.
Anyone who has or is dealing with this issue understands the complexity of how the role of parent-child suddenly become reversed.
Alot of the discussion was about how elderly parents suddenly feel like their children are judging them. Acting like they are “old” or feeble minded. They dont like it and I cannot blame them.
However sometimes the elderly are just darn stubborn. They refuse to believe they cannot do things and will not ask for help.
It is a difficult situation.
