Is anyone else in the same position? My mum has had Parkinson's for 14 years and is very frail. She is 76. My dad is the main carer and is 78.
My mum has several complications with Parkinsons (Osteoporosis) and colostomy bag due to operation a few years ago (October 2014).
I have noticed her thought patterns are slowing a bit. I have a young toddler and another baby on the way. Most of the time, I focus on the positives which are that my toddler keeps my mum going and brings her some joy. I try to focus on the here and now. I almost repress the future as I can't control it.
However, due to low blood pressure, my mum has been fainting a lot recently- sometimes several times a day and has a lot of falls which could potentially be very dangerous and really stress my dad out.
Would appreciate any practical advice or simply chatting with anyone who feels the same.
