anytime is hard to take care of a sick person full time especially an adult. Pace yourself and do things you can enjoy but stop like reading or writing which you can return too after you help. Also try not to take it as a burden and enlist help even before you need it. I took care of my dying wife for 13 years and the patience I learned was real needed. Also if they strike out at you verbally it isnt really their fault it is the medication and situation just have grace and if it gets to you get a stand in for a little while. God Bless You and Help you in this time.

i know genrally everybody will say that it is not at all hard to take care of a sick parent as they r our parents n it's our duty n love 2 take care of them. But the truth is that the person who is taking care of, is the only one who actually knows wht is the parents's condition n hw much it takes to take care of them, nobody else can understand or feel what u r feeling at this point. But then also, i'll say only one thing that if u really care n love ur parents than just keep doing the good for them n surely one day u'll b rewarded in the shape of gud health of your parents.
