I believe that my parents, who have different stages of Alzheimer's,
should be allowed to "participate" in anything that involves their care (i.e., who, what,
where and when) as well as any and all family conferences in their regard. Unfortunately,
there are eight siblings that disagree with this and have excluded our parents, as well
their primary caregiver (me) from these family meetings and decision making. A "mediator"
is probably needed to help with these issues. I am afraid that this will end up in a "legal"
battle among siblings if not sorted out. Our parents have noticed the dissent and tension
among their children and that is not good for them. I would greatly appreciate input from
other caregivers who have similar issues. Thank you.
