Is this Alzheimer's disease progression or manipulation or fear?
My mom now can't stand to be alone for even 2 minutes. It's impossible for anyone to sit by her constantly. Also, she's insisting that me, my daughter or her aide sleep with her. When we refuse she begins to yell for us saying she needs us. Of course on arrival she either "forgotten" or it's something small like smoothing out the blanket. We try to take her into the kitchen or living room when we need to be in there, but often she's resistant to that as well. In healthier days she was a bit of a manipulator, and her behavior often looks that way; but my daughter thinks it's fear on her part. Is this disease progression or manipulation or fear? It's driving me crazy because I am not able to get the dishes or anything else done.
