Help! Mom and Dad are 82 now. They have been active up til this last year. They took their last trip to Florida this past year, so it's not like they are falling apart physically. Dad is starting to slow way down though with his balance and stability with getting around. Mom could probably run a marathon. She's phenomenal. They are both getting forgetful, but I even I am in my forties!! lol For the last year, however, I have seen Dad get increasingly irritated, mean and angry. I've read up on Dementia, and I'm quite certain these are a result of that. Dad yells at Mom so much that I know she is miserable. I have confronted his anger issue's to him before and told him there are meds for that, but he's old school, where you don't go to the doctor unless something is broke. I told Mom maybe go to doctor to get a script of Anti-Depression meds and slip them in his coffee OR SOMETHING! lol I know that is not the practical route to go, but Dad would NEVER go to the doc for his behavior. I told him the other day...why don't you just divorce Mom if she makes you so angry (jokingly). They have been married 58 years, and I love them both, but hate to see Mom go thru this. My brother lives out of town and doesn't what I see. When he does come to visit, it appears nothing is wrong. But I hear it (and see it) first hand how mean Dad is to Mom. The other day he even grabbed her by the arm...which is NOT ok with me. They have never had a physically abusive relationship before....Yieks...please help ~ I really appreciate your input!
