How to persuade someone to accept outside help

Right now things are reasonable stable, and I can manage by myself. However, there have been times when my husband's PD gets out of control due to some stressor, when I can't manage by myself, but he refuses to have others around.

How have others overcome such a problem.

I've mentioned before my husband is a holocaust survivor. Not only do I hate to force something on him, it's impossible to do so. Also, when he's stressed, his mental abilities suffer and I can't reason with him. He doesn't understand my difficulties at such times.

Even now, when things are stable, mentioning getting help is a problem. We have a cleaning lady every second week for half a day. She's worked here for 3o years but he will make excuses every time she's due to find a way to cancel her day. sometimes I feel I'm doing my best just resisting that.

Any ideas?
