This years cricket trip planning - watch this space. Not sure if I mentioned before we go every year to watch cricket. Hes a nightmare but I do it. This years hes being funny. Doesn't want to go far and drive back in the dark, doesn't want to go somewhere expensive, doesn't want to go when the weath...
Oh Paul, You have always been the one doing things in the past so default position is that you will do it. Ignore brother's comments about you never doing anything for Dad, you know different and have no need to feel that awful carer guilt. You have offered plenty of options so ball back in your da...
!!!!! How utterly infuriating. Honestly, it defies belief sometimes that people do these things for my Dad. You start off then its set in stone with him and SOMEONE has to do it. This is about the 5th time that someone elses offer has been passed onto me. I've told him no can do. Dad won't be happy...
The neediness that comes with old age seems to come with built in selfishness. Well done for standing firm. Just need your uncle to get brave now! Tell me about it. He comes over as such a sweet helpless old man then people get his measure. Unfortunately the rest of the family mollycoddle him. Had ...
Some disgraceful behaviour by Dad...... He had an opticians appt this week. He hinted about 10 times for me to take him. (Nope I aint taking 1/2 day off work). So I said:- 1) Get a taxi. Its 1/2 mile it'll be easy. Let me know if you want me to book it. Answer - Not wasting money on taxis. 2) Take y...
Let her give it a go - she may abandon it! the main thing though, as you've highlighted, is that YOU don't get to 'pick up the pieces' when she decides she's had enough, or use you to do the 'heavy lifting' part of caring! on the bright side, it might work out brilliantly! I would enjoy the 'honeym...
No surprise there then Paul! If Im honest I could see it happening but they've caused more hassle now by offering without finding out the information. Hes now convinced that "someone" needs to be his carer. How on earth can a grown adult be so thick as to offer to do something for someone without f...
Absolutely fuming with the pair of idiots who have now backed out of the whole idea. Spoke to Dad last night. They'd told him the other day they were going to do it, he was really pleased, yesterday they made some b@llshit excuse why she can't do it after all! Strangely, shortly after I pointed out ...
Paul You know your dad won't change. Surely he will have to be assessed for needs, before anything. It's reversed now though isn't it. When you are needed to take over, as your brother and GF were , you can have any reason you like that you won't be available ( true or not!) I know he is your dad a...
She can't get Carers Allowance unless he qualifies for Attendance Allowance, which clearly if he can walk half a mile with a stick, he can't. Has dad ever arranged a Power of Attorney for you, in case he gets really ill? In your situation, I'd try to keep an eye on dad's outgoings to make sure they...
