Like a Dance
Two steps forward. Three steps back.
Bil refused services offered that could have helped him with some of his anxiety issues. We were hopeful, but once again Bil turned the services down.
It's disappointing. It is a big burden for his mother, who finds herself in her mid 80's with increasing mobility issues, to take him everywhere. We do what we can but we live far from him and can only see him a few times a year.
It sure would help if he would permit someone to take him on outings, take him shopping, and so forth, but it is very hard for him to trust anyone. Meeting a new person can generate a ton of anxiety for him.
These services may have helped him overcome some of this fear.
All we can do is keep trying.
