Elder Caregiver - Daughter

My Father passed away in June 2010. My Mom is spending a month with me visiting for the first time in my life. My father and her never spent time alone with any of their three children. So this time has been very stressful for me.


My mother has been very nasty and says very mean words. She is very resentful of me
and the beautiful life my husband and I have created. I have been patient with her
but have not allowed her to say things that are not true and get away with it. I have
taken it personally because she has definitely attacked me.

I feel very sad over the situation and realize there is not any hope for our relationship. She seems like she does not have a heart at all only for herself. My Father and her were very
selfish parents and neglected their children. So it continues in another way.

Thank you for this site as it has been helpful to read that other parents can be just a cruel. If
you have any other suggestions for me please tell me.

Set her down!

Set her down and explain that her negative nasty comments will not be tolerated. If it continues find a lovely assisted living situation and take her there....

If you have the Power Of Attorney and the financial ability, do not let her ruin the best part of your life.
