My 82-year-old father moved in with my husband I almost two years ago. Since day one he has had embarrassing "mishaps" occasionally, from locking himself out of the house, forgetting where the spare key is hidden, trying to break in, to, we think, once possibly falling at the gas station this winter on ice while trying to fill his tires. He has always hidden these events from us or flat-out lies to us about the little events even happening. I cannot figure out what is going on. This morning I was home from work, he epically crashed his full coffee mug all over new patio stones out front, I happened to walk by the window to see him teetering to pick up the broken shards of the mug. He wasn't going to even tell me and was just going to let the stone stain. And why on earth did he not call for me to come help him? I really can't figure out what is happening here or how to mitigate it. He lies about having taken a shower when we know he has not in weeks and we have just given up on battling with him about these little things, but its the big things like the falls and him announcing to us nonchalantly a couple of months ago he goes up and down the stairs to the bedrooms now differently we may notice because his ankle gave out on him on the stairs one day and he nearly fell. My husband and I's mouth dropped open at this confession. How do I know about these things happening better than just getting lucky enough to be around to help him with the ones I catch? ANY ADVICE IS WELCOME! Have a great day.
