Lyn, I identify with your situation. Trying to get my mum to drink plenty of water etc is not always easy. There is too an awful lot of guilt associated with looking after elderly parents isn't there? Don't need further aggro. Hope you are coping
My nephew is a paramedic ...he is one of the caring ones and I must say they have mostly been excellent when dealing with my mum. There will always be the judgemental, callous element in every walk of life.
Spoke with an elder of my mums church this morning too.....half telling him off and half encouraging their support for my mum. Difficult for me to be tactful but I managed it
