This Week's Carenote - 11/23/10
I facilitate a Well Spouse Support Group. One of our members has a long and stressful life as a caregiver. Her mother lived till 104 and she cared for her husband who had developed dementia and finally passed away. She has taken care of her 36 year old son who has Downs Syndrome. She is a wonderful mother who has fought for her son every day of his life.
 
In the last few years, her son has become aggressive and confrontational. She is afraid of him at times because he seems to get angry and willful. Is there any professional or group that she can consult that would have information as to how to deal with her situation?
 
Thanks,
 
BT
