Dealing with a Beligerent Father.
My father is 96 years old, a widower and in an assisted living facility. He's from an era when children sacrificed their lives and freedom for their parents.
He believes that I took away his house and money for myself even though he was in and out of the hospital and fell down a lot a home. He almost set the kitchen on fire and refused to wait for his meals until I ran some errands.
He argues a lot with me to a point where I don't even go to visit him anymore. I too, am disabled and my doctors feel I need to let go of the stress. That's easier said than done. My sister lives out of town and is virtually no help, though she's a good listener.
My father has always been vocally abusive, but has gotten worse as he's aged. I feel there is nothing more I can do for him and have given up helping him except for the basics.
I pay for his medications which runs about $300 to $500 per month and it comes out of my disability check. Agencies refuse to help and I'm just on my own. I just don't know what to do anymore.
