Does anyone have any advice on caring for someone who has anxiety? My mother in law has Parkinson's Disease which has been progressing quite rapidly over the last few years especially.
She has medication to help keep her symptoms under control however she also has extreme episodes of anxiety which can cause her to not take her tablets (which make the symptoms worse) or have panic attacks which can then make her worse as well.. sometimes to the point where she can't move at all.
We try to help as much as we can but the anxiety can either mean she wants company all the time, or can get quite aggressive and nasty and refuse any help whatsoever.
Any advice would be appreciated
