My elderly father is an abusive alcoholic. His 10-year-relationship just ended, and I'm trying to find him care so that he can remain home but he is so abusive. How do I deal?
Abusive Alcoholic 84 years old Father who's 10 yr relationship just ended, yells at me when I try to arrange care. I have spent the last 2 weeks straight being at my Dad's making phone calls all day trying to set up care so that he can stay at home. When I say Dad, I am trying to follow your wishes of you staying at home. He starts yelling at me calling me stupid and says he has never liked me etc. He calls me everyname in the book and said I should just mind my own business. He cannot bath himself or make himself something to eat. I am so angry at the moment that I have told my siblings, I don't care now he can go in a home. I am not taking this abuse when I am the one trying to help him the most. I am so angry and feeling guilty. Thanks for listening.
