story of a family reunion and recovery

I want to share my story of a family reunion and recovery, maybe it will be of help to you. When my very old parents moved in with me and at first, I just didn't know what to do. I felt like my life is in complete chaos. I was hesitant to hire a caregiver because I am used to not trusting such services and yet I kept a distance between me and my parents; it started to show. But then 2 good things happened. I met a man who would be the love of my life and he changed my life. He told me "Just be honest with your parents, talk to them more and allow the caregivers give your parents the help they need. Just tell them honestly that they need professional care." And then I finally decided to allow caregivers in my house which was the second good thing to happen and it was a major one. I contacted this place: and they cared for my parents' needs. Since I had more time on my hands, I could actually TALK to my parents and now we are a family again. So, the lesson was learned that helpfulness and communication is care!
