Topic: Hello & Help
Hello everyone! My dad was diagnosed in February of this year with cc. He has chosen no treatment as he watched my mother lose her quality of life with chemo prior to dying a year and a half ago. He is currently in the hospital for a blood clot, fluid in his abdomen and an infection of some sort in his arm. The doctors feel it is time for hospice to be involved. We met with them today and found that we need to hire a caregiver to assist him at home or he should go to a nursing home. He would like to stay at home. When my mother was dying I was her caregiver and did everything for her. I just don't feel comfortable helping him with bathing and the bathroom since he is my dad. I feel really selfish but I don't want my dads privates to be the last thing I remember about him. If it were anyone else I could probably do it. So my question is how do you go about finding someone whose trustworthy and good to help out? I do love him and want to give him the best possible care we can get. Any suggestions?
