Mum has had the tests for dementia and they say she is ok. She forgets where she is sometimes, can't find her car, repeats things over and over again. Is abusive towards my sister and I and this has been an ongoing thing for a long time. We try and keep calm and give her suggestions but she won't listen and just tells us she knows what she is doing. She forgets her medication, gets depressed and cries on the phone that she is lonely. Then we go and see her and she has these rages. She has had tests for dementia and the counsellors say she is ok, just suffering from post traumatic after the death of her husband 12 months ago.
There doesn't seem to be any way we can reason with her. Another move another upheaval is draining on us and we go through the same scenario each time she moves. Mum is 82. She gets her pension and then spends it and forgets she has accounts to pay.
