Elder grief, son said he would never call his mother again.
Hello. I am a live in caregiver for my 93 year old mother. My older brother has decided I am stealing his "inheritance." Not true of course. I believe from his behavior he has mental issues. He called my mom and made wild accusations which caused her to cry. Days later he called again, got very confrontational with her on the phone, I interrupted, he was yelling at me on the phone, demanding. Because it was so disturbing, I went in mom's room and asked mom to hang up the phone. Mom heard him say he would never call again and obscene language she feels was directed at her. Mom is crying everyday and is quiet and moody. She wants to hear from her son. I cannot resolve things to his satisfaction. What can I do to help mom? It's not easy to get her out of the house. Could counseling help? Thanks for any reply.
