Have you taken care of an elderly parent at home?

Asked by mickhock (540points) September 24th, 2010

i am about to move Dad into our home because he has recently had strokes and he needs me for the first time in his life.
Any pitfalls to look out for?
He is 84 yrs old and still very happy and has recovered from the strokes to a point although he does get confused and scared about what will happen next to him.
We have converted a room into self-contained accomodation so that privacy is maintained.
Any ideas to fill the days with?
