He is showing signs of short-term memory loss and this is documented. I'm about to become his guardian and conservator because he no longer can make decisions for himself. I don't like to leave him alone but I have to dropoff and pickup my son from preschool. I'm home a lot and I feel he is being disrespectful when I come home and he is on the main floor unassisted. I feel I need to treat him like a child and put restrictions in place some how. Do you know where I'm coming from? I have a lot of patience. I'm doing all that I can but my feelings are jumbled because sometimes I think he's just being lazy and he has verbally said, ''I don't feel like it". I cleanup after him and prepare all his meals and run all his errands. Thankfullly, a caregiver is coming next week for a stretch of time. I feel guilty and disrespected. I guess this is normal BUT I know he doesn't remember. Just need to air it out for THE FIRST TIME. He's been living with me for 2 years now. I love him with much compassion and grace I can muster. I'm tired and sometimes feel defeated. Thoughts welcome.
