Only Child Caretaker to 93 Year Old Parent. Feeling Abandoned by my Family
I am responsible for taking care of my dad.
Not one person in the family as been there for me to help out. His brother and sister have nothing to do with him.
My husband and I couldn't stand the constant phone calls at all hours of the day and night from my father, so I hired a Home Health Aide. He now has one for during the week and one for the weekend, but it's only for several hours a day.
My father now acts like a little boy. He wants constant attention and feels the world revolves around him. Also his memory isn't great and he's very anxious. My husband helps when he cans, but he works full time and doesn't have the
patience for my dad.
All he does is complain about everyone and everything. He never has a nice thing to say. Whenever I visit him he's in a bad mood.
The entire situation is very depressing. He doesn't appreciate anything that my husband and I do for him. My back is against the wall because I've got no choice here.
I resent being the only one showing any concern. He has grandchildren and a daughter in law. They are a no show and hardly call him.
I am angry, disgusted, and fed up!
