Dear Carol: My 88-year-old father lives with me. I’m divorced and have a teenage son at home. My son has some responsibilities regarding my dad, his grandfather, who had dementia, and this is causing problems between us. I feel so torn between the two. Any advice? Teen’s Mom
Dear Teen’s Mom: Making choices between the needs of our children and the needs of our aging relatives is painful and often confusing for most of us who have needed to do this. You have a more difficult situation than many, since you are single and your dad lives with your and your teenage son.
