How can I get my mom to go into assisted living when she is a hoarder and will not give up her things?
My mother has been a difficult narcissistic person most of her life and it has gotten worse as she has gotten older. She has been diagnosed with mild dementia and it is progressively getng worse. She hates my sister and brother because she is certain they have stolen from her and has been verbally abusive towards them somthey have ceased contact withnher. She has accused them of poisoning my mind so I could turn against her, which i have nomidea what I have done to make her feel this way. We used to be close but I moved away a couple of years ago and have since moved back but it is difficult to have a relationship with her because she is so negative and accuses her own children and grandchildren of stealing from her. I've tried to help her but she refuses my help so I have distanced myself from her, so she has no one care for her. I worry about her well being, but don't know what to do with someone who doesn't want help but is in desperate need of help. She trusts strangers more than she trust her family. The social worker from her doctors office has asked me to get guardianship for her as she recommends she should go into assisted living. I am handling this all on my own since she doesn't want anything to do with my sister or brother and not sure at this point me either. I know for certain she will refuse to go into assisted living. She has two dogs that I am worried about since she loves them but doesn't care properly for them. I have started e guardianship and conservatorship but not looking forward to this difficult process. She is a hoarder and her stuff is more important than anything and having to deal with that I am very overwhelmed, guilty and stressed about the situation. Any advise would be appreciated.
