For good reason. He was diagnosed five years ago and his life now is his chair and his television. He doesn't go anywhere, doesn't want to do anything. He feels like his room is his prison. I have no idea how to help him see the positives, that he is still alive and can spend time with his grandsons. It is the most depressing thing I have ever had to endure watching my father die this way. I try to keep things light with him. Nothing really works. I can understand why and would never assume to know how he feels, but I feel like he should try to live what life he has left. Does anyone have any suggestions?
