The Hardship of Caring for an Ailing Loved One

My Dad passed away last year (May 2011) after having a strong 2.5 years before that. The stroke put him on a slow and steady downward path of declining health, first with memory loss, emotions out of control, then loss of mobility, loss of speaking. Ending with loss of life. Caregiving in a Chinese family context is filled with filial piety and love in action. It is a hard road.
