I am a paid caregiver for an old family friend. He has been very narcisstic man his whole adult life. He is 79 and has Parkinson's syndrome. He does need help doing most everything. My thoughts and questions are- I am assuming he will never change for the better. I have now entered his "inner circle" and he is verbally abusive and demanding. It is hard to set boundaries because if he doesn't get waited on hand and foot for things such as bring him a drink, comb his hair (very vain), pick up things he has dropped, turn up tv, change channels, etc. he will threaten to get up and do it himself. He falls about once or twice a week- just being stubborn. His wife has applied for Medicaid so someday he will be going into a nursing home but until then I am trying to figure out how to keep myself on an even keel. Sometimes I remain calm, other times I am rude to him (not as rude as he is), sometimes I just agree with him that I am very lazy or wherever he accuses me of being, sometimes I smile, etc. Nothing seems to change his consistent demeanor. Any suggestions to help me and his wife get through the next few months? thanks for reading !!!!
