Since I put my dad into an very nice assisted living, he has been giving them hell. He did have an UTI. That is now cleared up, but is still tearful and has repeatedly cried for me to come and get him. He is 90 and very self centered, selfish, and demanding. Even the nurses are having a difficult time controlling him. He is using so much of their time demanding that they help him to "sail around the Horn of Good Hope;" "Get a taxi to Atlanta." Etc.
He's been there 3-1/2 weeks. At first we, my husband and I, were visiting once per week. He is an hour away, we are retirees ourselves. This can be exhausting. I have also been calling him every morning and evening.
I told my aunt, a retired nurse, and she said I am having too much contact. That I should give him a chance to get used to his environment. She told me by reacting to his demands and bad behavior is making it worst.
