Hi - I am new here.
I am worried about my Father-in-law (mid 60's) who is caring for my Mother-in-law who has 2 types of cancers. In the past month she has deterioated like you wouldn't believe. He won't get any help in to do domestic duties and insists on caring for her. (they have a large house to manage) I worry that his method of coping will consume him. She's not so mobile at the moment either. He's old school and I have suggested that there are resources out there but he says he's 'fine for the moment'.
I am a carer myself of my 4yr old boy and I know how consuming and isolating caring can get.
I can't just sit back and do nothing, any advice?
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
