Hi and first off I am new here and I am somewhat of a new caregiver for my Dad whom is 87 years young. I have been caring for him ever since this whole pandemic thing has started back in March which was the same time I just got laid off of a new job.
To go on to the story, my older brother came by to visit my Dad and I. I am already aware of his repetitiveness, but my brother is new to it. My Dad said something to my brother repeating it 4 times within a time span of maybe 20 minutes. Later on after my brother left he texted me that my Dad repeated the same thing to him 4 times and I'm like...yes he always repeats the same stuff and tells me the same stories, he's getting older.
But should it also be a problem for me too to recognize that?
Now I'm wondering if my brother will start to blame me for not caring for him properly because of his repetitiveness because he is not used to seeing my Dad like that?
Should I feel like I'm doing something wrong with my Dad or?
Can someone please give me some advice on this?
Thanks in advance.
