My Dad, soon to be 90, is living in a retirement apartment. He is still able to care for himself but he calls me many time a day usually for the most trivial things. It is like I am talking to a toddler most of the time. I know he gets bored, but how can I talk to him and not make him feel he is a bother to me or belittle him? I know it is just something I have to put up with, but if anyone else has a parent who does this it would be helpful in knowing how you handle this. Thank you and Happy Holidays.
