What should I do about an abusive alcoholic father that one cares about?
What do I do about an abusive and alcoholic father that one cares about. We've been slipped, shoved, cursed at, screamed at, accused and threaten. My sisters have written him off.
My mother never wanted to leave him. In June, he threw her out of "HIS" house, throwing some of her things outside and shoving her out the door. My sister was there at the time this happen, quickly brought my mother to my house. My mother has with moderate Alzheimer now lives with me full time. (I've been dealing with him since my mother was living with him).
I don't want to care for my abusive father, yet I feel he should be cared for somehow. I've been taking him to the doctors, dealing with all his financial problems, and taking his abuse. I have Power of Attorney to deal with both parent's medical and financial matters. He lives 30 miles away, making solving problems difficult. Can social serves deal with elderly abusive alcoholic parent everyone hates? What can be done?
