I'm losing it. Mom with dementia accusing me of all sorts of things.
Some more detail...I'm sure this is "normal" in my situation but I'm having a hard time handling it. I moved Mom into a senior community with support. This was about 3 months ago. I visit her several times a week. Today she told me that she wants to move somewhere else. She wants to move near my brother who is several states away. (IF ONLY!) Or into a place of her own. (She was in a place of her own nearby for the past 2 1/2 years and no longer remembers it.) Tonight she's calling me and accusing me of stealing her car. I'm truly ready to cry. I read the notes she writes and leaves all over her apartment about me stealing her money and taking her things. Again, I know this is "normal" for dementia...but it's causing me unbearable stress. I'm near the breaking point. Suggestions...Please!!!
