Caring for a carer

I am currently supporting a relative who is caring for someone with Dementia. They are not coping well and are angry, depressed, sad, grief struck and emotional. How can I help them when they wont accept my help?

Welcome to TP :)

Don't put any pressure on them or have any expectations of them.
Pop round with a cake or some flowers?

I know when I'm overwhelmed with my dad & FIL the last thing I want is someone else expecting something from me.
I have a tendency to turn inwards.

Thank you, Cat. I have done flowers and cake but they are getting increasingly distressed.
