To bring a defamation of character lawsuit against your father wouldn't have too much of a legal standing in any court room today. I find this site "to be a well of spring water when you are wandering in a desert of dry thirsty lands of elderly care"
Then, I found this site. If you hop around, you will find over and over how the parents favor the "selfish, or self-centered" siblings who do not help at all. They are so happy when they visit or when they call once a year. They sing their praises on our unworthy siblings, but as for us...we just get the verbal abuse or negativity. So, yep, it is Very common that the elderly is mean to the one taking care of them.
I found out how helpful it is to come here and vent. A lot of times, some posters will see your vents and give you some pointers that helped them in handling the situation. I like that one too.
