Need help getting Mom to go to her doctor's appointments.
My mother has dementia. We don't have a diagnosis yet but the doctors are leaning toward Alzheimer's. The main problem we're having at the moment is getting her in for her doctor's appointments. The mere mention of doctors or medical personnel of any sort sends her into an irrational rage. Or last office visit resulted in a forty minute conversation with the nurse outside before we were forced to give up without seeing the doctor. She has an appointment on Monday and the doctor's advice was to inform her of where she is going and to speak to her calmly. This did not work the first time. Can anyone give us any tips?
