My Dad is a widower and is suffering from Mild dementia. He was diagnosed with this after suffering prostate cancer and now we (4 adult kids) help him with medication ordering, am and pm visits, and weekend visits. He lives in an Independent living facility and likes it there and was evaluated for dependant living, but he doesn't need that. The issues are I have one sister who is retired, and the rest of us all work. I have been his primary caregiver for the last 2 1/2 years until I broke my foot then I had my gallbladder out. I was unable to drive and care for my Dad for apprx 2 1/2 months. The rest of my siblings took over to help, but made me feel bad----When I had just gotten out of the hostpital they asked, cant we bring dad over for the afternoon, etc. I said no. My Brother had surgery as well, and was "off duty " for about 5 months. My 2 sisters said it was too much and they hired my nephew to help care for my dad, (he is 24 and doesn't work) and ever since have been making comments in groups texts about how I was gone so long, Dad has gotten worse, etc etc. I just recently completeled getting all my Dads meds done, Dr calls in, ect, so I have been involved in his car, but I just couldn't drive a car. So I have cared for my Dad for YEARS, and now I am being treated like a child with all their remarks. I am really resenting it, and I don't care for how they are treating me. TOday I had it. I sent a text to my sister saying she was mean (I know, childish) but I was mad. Now she set up a mtg with a person from our church who they want us all to go meet. I said I wanted to go speak with a professional, someone who knows how to deal with these issues and has experience in the past with this. This woman from the church is nosey and also specializes in depression. I don't see how this will help my Dad, our scheduling, issues between siblings, etc. How do I get my family to go to this woman, quit treating me like a person who abandoned their Dad, and treat me with the respect I treat them? Thank You,.
