My mom is 85, lives beside me and for several years has felt my husband and or me has been stealing from her and making changes to numbers in her checkbook. I had just dismissed most of it until yesterday when she called our local sheriff's office to tell then my husband came into her home and tried to kill her while she was asleep. She also showed all of her bank statements to the officer telling him what we were doing to her. Of course it took him no time to ask me if she has dementia. She has never been diagnosed because for the most part her mind has seemed alright but now I realize it's not. She's refusing to see her doctor and told me of I call him to tell him about this I will regret the day I was born. I am afraid to leave her alone and don't have a clue what to do or where to turn. I have called her doctor and am waiting on a response back.
