how do you "help" an elderly person cope with aging who has had a stroke and has memory loss?
I am a caregiver who is taking care of an 85 year old woman who has recently had a stroke. She is in denial of her memory loss and is having a hard time having to "taken care of". She lies in bed all day and wants me to "wait" on her. She wants to make her own decisions but does not want to take physical responsibility for herself. How do I "help" her and still allow her to keep her dignity?
