I've bounced things off of all of you before and received some great advice. My dad is 89 and my mom is 86. My mom doesn't talk much anymore, so my dad gets lonely for conversation. I have a caregiver there with them throughout the day, but for some reason, dad has decided he doesn't like her. So, he calls me griping about what she has made them for dinner and just recently, he's called me complaining that she has eaten all of their cobbler or banana pudding. Yesterday, he called me complaining that there was just enough vanilla ice cream left for mom to have some. I had recently bought some for them and told him where it was in the freezer. He huffed and puffed...insinuating that the caregiver had eaten it all. It has gotten to the point where I just dread talking to him because I know he's going to be complaining about something, simply because he has eaten something and forgot, or that he can't find something and blames the caregiver. This is so mentally exhausting! Do any of you experience the same thing?
