Why is my Grandfather upset about me not going back to his house even though he has help in the morning?


I left at 5:30 this morning, he was alone for an hour , then his hired help that comes in twice a week came in and was suppose to stay until 9:30am but he tells them to go after 1-2 hrs! Then, his home care nurse is coming, physical therapist and a neighbor will be there all morning cleaning with her machine.. But yet, hes upset that I wont be there to? Why?

I finally have a chance to actually go to the store and somewhat clean my house. Oh and take care of the animals we have here, take a bath, get my kids school stuff ready ahead of time..( a whole 12 hours) etc... and hes mad at me!

Why is he doing this? These people he trusts too, so its not a trust issue.

Eyerishlass, I think your right, he does enjoy their company. And I know he's in good hands too.

Thank u both!

And to piggy back onto Pam's comment, once your back is turned and his other helpers get there he's probably fine and enjoying the attention.

You have spoiled him rotten with all your kindness. He's like a toddler who keeps yelling "I want my mommy!" You tell the child you are going to the store and you will be back at a certain time. And you go. If he wants to throw a tantrum, that is his problem. Toss the guilt aside.
