He lives alone, still drives and has a girlfriend he has dinner with every evening. He has small artery disease which makes it difficult for him to move about without struggling for breath. He does use oxygen in his house and in his car. He rides a motorized cart when shopping and it takes him a long time to get his groceries put away! He has about 8 steps to go up and down to get into or out of his apartment so he just takes a few items at a time out of his push shopping cart. He tries to clean his house when he is able but if I drop over without letting him know the sink is usually piled with dishes, the counter and floors crumbs and clothes on his den chair and couch! Although he has finally allowed my sister and myself to clean and do his laundry. He will not allow us to hire someone else to do it as he doesn’t want a stranger in his house! He is of complete sound mind with no signs of dementia (this we know because he is in a over 90+ study through UCI and every 6 months goes in for tests. However, he is very careless with his house phone, cell phone and car keys but he has always been like this. It is now just very difficult for him to get on the ground to look under things so my sister and I do that and usually find what he has misplaced or dropped. However, we are now unable to find his cell phone, which he depends on to call long distance! Yes, he has friends and cousins his age whom he speaks with once a week! Our dilemma is that we haven’t figured out how to put a tracking device on his cell phone since he can't use a smart phone as his fingers are too big and clumsy so he uses a flip phone that is easier to use but there is no data and therefore we can not install a tracking app! Also he does get angry at us when we want to do things for him like shop or even pick him up. We have stopped inviting him over to dinner because although we do not live far and you can get to our homes without going on the freeway, he insists that he can drive better on the freeway! Has any one else felt with such a stubborn aging father?
