My mom(86), normally very caring has begun to argue with me over anything/nothing just to get a rise out of me. Refuses to cook, clean up after herself, sarcastic, says things to hurt me and doesn't care. I live with her, take care of ALL her needs and nothing makes her happy. She wants to be entertained constantly but never appreciates the effort. HELP!

a dementia patient usually starts having trouble retrieving nouns. the problem is short term memory loss. sometimes a nurse will give a patient a couple of pills to take then ask them 5 minutes later if theyve taken any pills. in my experience the elder starts saying a lot of stuff that isnt so.
