My mom is 79 with dementia. They are both still in their home. I do the grocery shopping, make most of the meals, do the wash, take them to dr appts, sort their pills, lawn care, etc...I hired someone to clean and got a visiting nurse to check on them. After 2 months, he told all of them not to come to the house anymore. It took me a long time to get the nurses to come, because my parents refused their help at first. Now my dad has started yelling at me that I am a phony and why do I work so much...or...why do I keep trying to get all his money (he has no money)? He has no dementia, but I did hear the possiblity that the prednisone he is taking might be making him agitated. He takes his anger out on me, and it is usually sudden. Today, I picked up their prescriptions and dropped them off. While I sat at the table setting up my mother's pills...he came over and started yelling at me that I was no good and didn't care about them...and then said my husband was a jerk...this happened a few times before. Could it be the prednisone? I have one sibling that lives out of state, so I am all they have. I have actively been taking care of them for over 2 years now. The next time I go over, he will be fine for a few minutes and then he flips out. I am so frustrated. I am coming home in tears most of the time, but I have to go back and take care of them. The doctor's office tells me to call the police. On my parents? I can't do that.
