    Keep in mind that they took their time when you were born to care for you and make sure you had a well rounded life, in every stage of your life. Now its your turn to care for them. As for your family, try to get them involved so they won't feel left out. Remind them that one day, they may need the same care, and if they treat people the way they want to be treated, then it will come back twice fold. I think, if you keep in mind the reason your helping your parent/s, and being their for them, then everything else will fall into place.
