Dementia dad, his caregiver my mother is an alcoholic who had become verbally abusive to him. He did not know who she was (this became worse when she was mean to him), and wanted to throw her out. It was ugly every day. I am an only child, work 6 days a week, and tried to help the best I could. I live within walking distance of them. Mom basically told me to get rid of him and she never wants to see him again and she also threatened suicide. I arranged for an ALF nearby. I signed all of the papers as POA, lied to his face to get him to walk in there. I feel like I was forced to do the dirty work and it will haunt me forever. I am having bad dreams and hardly sleeping. My mother wants to be my friend but I will never see her the same way again.
