I am truly burned out! Even though I removed myself from my father’s home I’m still stressed dealing with his BS! I was diagnosed with shingles. My father was evaluated by a new psychiatrist, his old psychiatrist transferred his care to a geriatric. Well, as usual he passed with flying colors for depression he scored a 1 so I guess I’m the nut. He is so manipulative. My father had my sister call my brother that had not set foot in his home for over 3 yrs, told him to call the police on me and that he was a prisoner in his own home. He also said he doesn’t know how much money he has in the bank cause I won’t take him. Well my brother didn’t fall for it. He talks really badly about me my father, told the new psychiatrist that I was his big problem. I had one caretaker tell me he is so verbally abusive she called the agency and told them never to send her back to care for him. I guess since he’s still knows the date, time, year no nursing home for him. What other options do I have??? I hired a caretaker that comes for 3 hrs on the weekends and during the week I have one that’s there 2 hrs a day. One caretaker said even though he can do things on his own he wants to be waited on had and foot. My sister tried staying with him but he has her running, she herself has some issues and can’t tolerate his negative behaviors. My brother refuses to care for him although he is saying that he can’t be left alone.
