Taking care of your sick parent is one of life’s greatest responsibilities, sadly, it is also a responsibility that no one prepares us for. It doesn’t matter how much you love them, and how many sacrifices you are willing to make for them, seeing your parent become sick and frail will have a great toll on you.
You will find yourself in a complex emotional roller coaster that will change your life forever – one minute you are in shock, the next minute you are oscillating between anger, sadness, helplessness, confusion, fear and sometimes even guilt. Through it all, you will need to find the strength to do what is right for your parent.
In the past two years, I have talked to a number of people whose parents had suffered from chronic illnesses before their death and some whose parents are still living with chronic illnesses, this guide is a compilation from our experiences.
In this guide, you will find tips and advice that will help you to plan and cope with the financial, emotional, physical and psychological challenges of caring for your parent.
I hope it will make this life-changing journey a little easier for you. Please feel free to share your own experiences and tips in the comment section.
