My mother has been problematic here and there my whole 48 years. Abusive toward my elder sister, and downright nasty and accusatory toward folks here and there generally. Now she’s 75 and had a stroke and of late, sepsis, of which she nearly passed, she’s being terribly violent and accusatory to my 80 year old father. We’ve had social work involved, however because he’s of sound mind, they leave. Dad is afraid as if he accepts help, she’ll kick off. She’s alienated most of her family and kids, and can’t seem to help herself. If we phone the police they’ll just deal with it in a ‘police manner’. But they’re both vulnerable adults, and as their adult child, I want it to stop for both their sakes, but don’t know where to go from here. She’s mostly ‘with it’. But occasionally delusional. I’m in the U.K. thanks folks.
