Support for Caregivers of Difficult Parents and Elders

Are you taking care of a parent or elder who is challenging or difficult?

Taking care of an elder, especially a parent, naturally brings up all kinds of feelings. When your parent or elder is a difficult person (whether due to personality issues, dementia, paranoia, or fear of losing control), the challenges are particularly difficult. Each encounter may feel like an emotional roller-coaster. You may be trying to do your best to keep your elder or parent safe and healthy, only to be met with hostility, criticism, demands or resistance.

When caretaking comes with grief, anger, guilt, and/or frustration

It's so important to have a safe place to share ALL of your feelings. You may go back and forth between grief, anger, guilt, sadness, overwhelm and fear. If your history with your parent or elder has been difficult, years of unpleasant experiences may be surfacing now that you're the one in the parent role.

It's so important (and healing) to have someone who knows what you're going through, who understands your feelings, where you know you won't be judged for feeling resentment or anger.
