My dad has been in a nursing home for nearly six months now. It started off as a temp stay, and has turned permanent. Dad keeps saying that his "contract" is coming to an end soon and that we have to get ready to move him out of there. He used to have frequent delusional thoughts, but those seem to have dissipated now that he's on meds. Most of the time, he is rather lucid and calm, but sometimes he gets really frustrated and mad at us for putting him there. He leaves numerous messages on my phone, and on my mom's phone as well, which is overwhelming for us. The last message he left was really troubling to me. He mentioned that we had stripped him of everything, and the message went on for more than 5 minutes. Everything he said was true, and I feel that I may have precipitated things to the extent of causing emotional harm to my father. One year ago I had to sell my parents' home (which they had put up for sale themselves, out of their own choice). Since they were unable to handle the real estate agent, nor the actual emptying of the house, I took it upon myself to do it all. My mom has metastatic cancer, so she wouldn't have been able to handle it either. I basically hired someone to take away all of their things, keeping only a few things they had asked me to bring back to their very tiny new apartment. My dad remembers all of this. His MRI clearly shows that he's got mixed dementia, but his lucidity is troubling to me. It makes everything unbearable, for him and for us. I sometimes wish that he would completely lose his mind and stop hurting so much. Any advice or words of comfort? I really need it right now. I've posted messages in this forum before, and the volunteer moderators have always been supportive and very helpful to me. Thank you so much.
