Elder Rage: What I Know Now

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/lifecycles/article/elder_rage_what_i_know_now_20040806

For 11 years. I begged my obstinate elderly father to allow a caregiver to help him with my ailing mother, but he adamantly insisted on taking care of her himself. Every caregiver I hired to help him said, "Jacqueline, I just can't work with your father -- his temper is impossible to handle. I don't think you'll be able to get him to accept help until he's on his knees himself."
