“I am finding it difficult still being his "daughter" and not a "parent".
“I think you will always be the daughter, but your role as a daughter will be changing. Your parent has a history and part of it is your parent/daughter relationship. Look at what your parent can and can not now do and help him out along the way. I hope that helps” “Thank you, I appreciate the advice. It is tough to remember that at times, but it is important to do.”
“Part of the problem with early onset Alzheimer's is that the majority of available services are geared to seniors... try to solicit help from his current network of friends. He needs to know that he is still valuable to everyone despite his cognitive challenges. You will always be his daughter, even if you are taking over some of his responsibilities.”
Dir. Mimi Leder. Writ. Catherine Ryan Hyde (book), Leslie Dixon (screenplay). Perfs. Kevin Spacey, Haley Joel Osment and Helen Hunt. 2000. DVD. Warner Home Video, 2001.
