I am not my fathers caregiver but I am at a loss. To have once had great communication several times a week and to have my 82 year old father suddenly stop communicating, tell lies, refuse to talk to me, vicious and mean response to any text or phone calls, and to not talk to me for six months.
Plus turning a couple of situations where he lost control and put it off as it was I who lost control is heartbreaking to say the least. I am very concerned that something else might be going on.
I wish his wife would contact his doctors. My step mother however is covering for him and will not talk to doctors in fear of having to deal with his rage and mean spirited behavior.
She even validated his lies to my siblings who live out of state and don’t know what to think about all of it because it is so out of character for him. What can I do? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
