My 99yr old Mother is in a rehab awaiting long term care but she is extremely combative, hits, kicks, bites, punches, all she saids is that she wants to go home - everyone is telling me that this is dementia making her this way - I feel that I am doing this to her because I am not taking her home - what if she acts up at home with a caretaker - I am afraid and I feel I've made my Mother into a monster.....
