Father Refuses Help

My father who lives with us is refusing any outside help!! Any ideas?

Harriet in Virginia, 53

Many seniors do not want to have outside help. Your father needs to fully understand how you worry about him and how his behavior is affecting you and your family and your job. Make him part of the search process and ask him what qualities he’d like any helper to have.  The more input he has, the less he will think that you’re imposing someone on him.
