My mother is extremely independent, but a bit paranoid, well over the past few years this has been getting worse. she is constantly thinking people are breaking into her house and stealing things, but when I ask if she calls the police she always has an excuse why she cant. I went to see her for the first time in a few months and she did not recognize me? this was strange. she went on and on for hours that she thinks her house is bugged and someone is breaking in all the time stealing her tools. She is also a mild hoarder, so I hardly doubt that anyone would be able to find anything if they went in there. I don't want to think she is making this up, but I am truly worried about her sanity? what can I do to get her the help she needs.
