I have been a caregiver for two years and counting. At the request of my siblings, I along with my three children moved in to help care for my father. For the first couple of months our paid givers were live in. (One person for during the week, the other for the weekends.) Since then Dad's health has improved. So the weekday caregiver works from 9-5. The weekend caregiver from 12-5. Physically Dad has improved tremendously, his behavior is another story. That has gotten much worse. We hear so much about the elderly being mistreated, but there are elderly people who mistreat their children and grandchildren. Dad is insanely jealous of anyone who is close to my sister. He treats like her a Queen and me her lowly servant. If she and I talk, he comes and sits between us and interrupts like a child would interrupt for attention. If we go the store on an errand, he is complaining that we took two hours. He is sure to make me his target of ugly behavior if I go anywhere with my sister. It is impossible to discuss his financial affairs without him shouting: "Someone went into my acccount !!!" If he is not acting like my sister is the Queen, he is treating his weekday caregiver as his wife. She is allowed to bring her child every day. Since I work from home, he got upset with me the other day that his caregiver did not leave her child with me while they went on an errand. He ignores his own grandchildren and fawns over the caregiver's child. Every day turns into an ugly battle. My sister has started to tell him that he will be placed in a Nursing Home if he does not change his behavior, but I know that wont happen. Its a frustrating situation. I find myself feeling anxious and sad all the time. We live in a very expensive state and I could not afford to rent an apartment on my income. Thanks for letting me vent.
