Bad Behavior - Is Your Elderly Parent Turning on You?

Sometimes, elderly parents turn on the child that is trying so hard to take care of them and the result is abuse of the caregiver. Stories of mental, emotional, even physical abuse to the adult child are all-to-common.

Unless the elder has a personality disorder or mental illness, they turn on the one adult child who is showing the most love because they feel safe enough to do so. They don't consciously abuse this son or daughter, but they are frustrated and need to vent this frustration about getting old, having chronic pain, losing a spouse and friends, having memory issues, being incontinent, etc.


What to do:

 

Try talking to them about how the abusive behavior makes you feel. However, many caregivers don't get very far by talking. If the abuse is verbal or emotional, making them realize all that you do for them, by not doing it for a while, may drive home the point that they better be nicer to you, or you will leave. Finding a little respite for yourself by getting help will allow your parent to gain a new appreciation for all you do.
If the elderly parent is physically abusing their caregiver, then professional help, be it the authorities or a counselor may need to get involved.
