I have been taking care of dads finances since my mom died. Dad's dementia is slowly getting worse. He has accused me of stealing 8000 dollars from him off and on for the last year, even though he hasn't seen a bank statement in years. Now he is accusing me of stealing his pocket watch because we can't find it. I have searched his bedroom and cannot find it anywhere. He says I took it and gave it to my husband. He says he saw my husband with it recently when he was here. Truth is he hasn't seen my husband in a very long time, nor has dad been at our house in the last year as he is in assisted living. How do I deal with these accusations? It is hurtful since I do so much for him. If I deny the theft he simply argues. How do I deal with this? I go visit with him once a week only to hear from aids and nurses of the lies he is telling about me, to all the workers there and all who visits him. This is so sad to me as my dad and I were very close.
