This Week's Carenote - 06/11/13

 

At 48, I gave up my career and life as I knew it in Florida to move back with my parents after they lost everything during Hurricane Sandy. I rebuilt their home and got them moved back in. The plan was that once I reestablished my career in New York, I would get my own place close to them. Two months ago, my mom became very ill and passed away six weeks ago. I decided, along with my dad, who is 81, that I would remain in the home to assist him while still pursuing my career. He has since become very bitter. He becomes angry when I go out and would prefer for me to sit here and watch TV with him 24/7 as he did with my mom. I am a person constantly on the go. I need to find him companionship or things to do during the day/evening. I have offered for him to come with me, but he refuses. I am looking for advice on activities in Brooklyn. Thank you.

Jean
