I have been thrust into the role of caring for my dementia father and limited-mobility mother (both in their 90s). I am the their only child. My parents came to live with me two years ago; seven weeks ago my mother became ill and had to go to rehab and I was caring for my father with the help of caregivers. Now that my mother is home I am criticized for everything I do and don't do. My mother threatens to go "into a home" because she has certain expectations, which she feels are not being met. She complains about the food, medications, room, etc. I try to accommodate but nothing seems like it is ever right. I ask her to express to me what she needs but she expects me to be clairvoyant. My husband doesn't like the situation either because he sees how stressed out I am. I don't like my reaction to her criticism and I try to explain myself but she just gets angry and then starts to cry. I feel so inadequate; I think I am doing my best. I have hired a full-time caregiver, but after she leaves for the day whatever I do is not acceptable. How can I deal with constant negativity? This situation is affecting my health.
