I have been dealing with this issue for a while. My mom, who we live together, is 70 and has early onset dementia. I have done some much for her. I have made her cigarettes, even though I don't smoke, but her doctors say that she needs to keep her brain moving and it has really stressed me out having to make her cigarettes when buying them isn't possible. Well I have recently showed her how to make them. SHE HATES IT! When I enter the room, she makes a huge deal about having to make them, but I feel, as does my sister, who does smoke, that's its good for her. I think she wants me to take over, but I won't. I have made them for her for almost a year, and I have decided that I am not going to do it. When she gets really frustrated, I show her again, but I don't do it. Am I wrong for making her do this? Am I being mean to her or doing something for her to keep her mind going? I don't feel guilty for doing it, because I don't smoke, but am I wrong?
