Cathy started to resent caring for her parents and she didn’t want to feel like that anymore
Cathy never really thought about home care for her parents before needing it. She hadn't even considered aged care.
"The idea of a stranger coming into your bedroom or your bathroom. Even them showering Mum, it's pretty invasive stuff."
The worst of it started when Cathy's mum got sick. Lung cancer. That was 10 years ago.
