(3) They did everything they could for Alfred except.......

As a matter of fact my folks did everything they could for Alfred.  Besides assisting him in getting health care and food they also build him a cabin, fully furnished and heated it, and they provided him with transportation into town for his groceries. Alfred on the other hand would do nothing for his own recovery. He was and has been in complete denial.

So almost fifteen years ago in 2001 my folks begged me to come home from working overseas to live wth them in North Carolina as they would need help with Alfred however also they would need help in their elderly years for they wanted to stay here, live in the mountains, and not in an institution such as assisted living.  I was happy to help. So I became caregiver for three of my family elders.

My folks did everything they could for Alfred except make him recover and that can not be done for cooperation is needed.

Over the last years I have gotten some cooperation from Alfred and in this can be found the source of the strength needed to put forth toward his recovery. More about how I've gotten his cooperation in future blog posts.

My goal is to continue to get Alfred's cooperation in his own recovery. Will DSS help? Following me in this blog and we will find out and I will let you know.
