This is very personal. TMI, an overshare.
A family member called this morning. They had to “yell at” my dad, that’s the only way to get him to “do what they need him to do.” And since the nurses complain that dad doesn’t follow instructions, they told the nurses that it’s ok to yell at dad.
I was shaken. All day. There was no talking to them. No “advocating.” And of course, I’m here in California and they are all there, on the east coast.
Where is my Teepa Snow
? If I can’t get the best for my dad, can anyone? Haven’t I been at my total wits end too? Who am I to judge?
Is dementia understanding where autism understanding was 50 years ago? Why must it be like this. For so many.
