Helping daughters feel positive about looking after their ageing parents
As you get older, so do your parents and then after a certain age they become less able than they used to and begin to need assistance. Sometimes, you're able to provide some or all of what they need and sometimes you aren't. You might feel obliged to help or want to, you might feel physically able or limited, but either way this comes with the emotional reminder that somewhere ahead is the loss of your parent. Resources are available so that you don't need to feel alone and feel more empowerment to take on this role or find alternatives for where you are unable to do the role(s) yourself.
