You love your parents. But the Sunday afternoons you used to spend eating dinner and catching up are now taken up with you or your spouse shoveling the driveway or mowing the lawn.
Instead of your dad calling you to ask about your day, he calls to ask you to pick up some prescriptions.
You’ve taken to checking their refrigerator each time you go over, because they not only have expired food in there, they’re eating it.
The call from the emergency room to your workplace has already occurred once when your mom became dehydrated from the flu. You’re already dreading another call, which you fear could come at any time.
Your amazing parents, who took care of you when you were a child, need more help than you can provide.
