How can you deal with someone who gets panicky and refuses to follow instructions? She will freeze and when anyone tries to help her move to a chair, or if she almost falls, she will fight you off and refuse to do what you tell her to do. My dad is getting angry about it because he says she refuses to listen. She will say that he is trying to make her fall. I think that she is getting to the point where she doesn't understand everything we say. Trying to keep her as mobile as possible and out of a wheelchair.
