I would continue to be his friend.....that's doing a lot...Sometimes folks shy away from illness..too scary and hits too close to home..

Can you manage a wheelchair? I used to take a PD client out for all sorts of fun 'n games that his sister & the nursing home staff would've disapproved of. But we had lots of good times up until about 2 months before he passed.
