So, I've returned home and need to deal with the fall out from the Adult Day Care nonsense from last week. I seriously experienced a sense of dread on the plane ride home, as I knew I would have to figure this all out.
I HAD to make the decision to pull Dad out of the Adult Day Center, and he seems miserable. Dad told me that due to all the stress from Monday's situation, he had a bathroom accident, and he thinks that he was kicked out of the ADC because he "lost his bowels". This ticked me off even more because I am sure the driver (that left him) was yelling at him. She yells at everyone.
That's the story stuck in Dad's head, and nothing I say convinces him otherwise. I'm tired of repeating that everything is OK, and I kinda snapped at Dad this weekend. I was like "let's just talk about something else." When he started up again, I just wouldn't respond to him at all and THAT upset him.
So... what now? I REALLY don't have time to deal with this, but it seems like I'm going to have to take time off work to straighten this out.
Who should I talk to? Hospice? The ADC Director? The Driver? The VA Social Worker? The Assisted Living Place? All of the above?
Where do I start? I want to REPORT the ADC guy, but is that necessary?
I HATE that I'm the only one that ends up dealing with this despite my futile efforts to delegate. Somehow this all ends up back in my lap that's WAY too full.... Yuck.
