One of the difficult things that we deal with in our practice on a regular basis is the elderly parent who simply refuses all efforts by their adult children to provide for any type of care or assistance. Sometimes this may be the result of nothing more than stubbornness and misplaced pride, but sometimes it may be a sign that a more serious cognitive impairment or decline in functioning is taking place and occurring. These are never easy situations to deal with, but the more you educate yourself in advance the better you'll be able to cope.
Here's a great article that I recently came across that does a really nice job of laying out some important strategies and steps to take and consider should you ever find yourself in this situation.
