Dad is Driving Me Nuts!
(San Jose, CA)
I began to care for Dad about three years ago as he began to "do those things" that the elderly do....small car accidents, (no people involved), drinking glasses knocked off the counter, broken and not cleaned up...forgetting to dress properly, buttons, zipper is down that sort of thing.
These type issues are not so bad, it is the expectations of being held accountable for everything he believes needs to be done....NOW!
Like most people I have a job and family and other responsibilities, and this is something that must be done...but wow, I cannot be there when he thinks of something he has to do....I know, I know, I volunteered to drive him now that the car accidents are getting more frequent...in only he would be patient and know that we could have a schedule to get things done....do not know how much more I can take....he is 84 almost 85 and has bad eyesight and fading memory.
If someone has an idea or a comment that would help I would be very grateful.
This site allowed me to vent so on one hand sorry for the rant...on the other thanks for a place to go to do this....
