My mother was diagnosed with alzheimer's a few years ago and has had good and bad days. Lately she has become more and more agitated and violent towards my step father. She calls him every nasty name in the book and threatens to throw his belongings out and tells him to get out of her house. He's about done and has spoken to doctors, but he can't get the help he needs without the doctor giving my mother an evaluation. The problem is that she won't go to a doctor because she refuses to acknowledge that something's wrong with her. If one even brings it up, she gets violent. We don't know what to do. She's not ready for a nursing home. Is anyone out there experiencing this?
