i think I am qualified to give you an honest opinion from both sides here. My dad has altzeimers, heart failure, copd, kidney failure and is profoundly deaf. My mum has osteoarthritis and macular degeneration and is registered blind. I would dearly love to do more for them, but they really are very proud and expect very little from me.....I have Parkinsons. I have two grown up children and an 8month old granddaughter. I do not and will not expect my children to make sacrifices for me, whatever stage of parkinsons I am at. We are gifted in the uk to have a wonderful care system. My mum and dad have carers visit twice daily, along with hot meals delivered. My advice to you is to relax, make every day count and enjoy all of you're family, after all it's a short life.
