Our mom had been going down hill for about 3 years. We noticed issues, friends noticed, strangers noticed. Her driving had become so bad she turned left at a red light in front of a police officer and then pulled over a curb before she stopped. They told us not to let her drive again and we haven't (even though she keeps talking about when she starts driving again...). She also was having serious issues cooking so my dad took over that role. But then dad died a few months ago and now we are taking care of mom. She has since been diagnosed with alzheimer's complicated by a stroke which affected her vision (and we think other things). But despite two doctors and a neurologist telling her she has alzheimers, she refuses to admit anything is wrong with her. She insists on doing everything, despite the fact that if we let her do a lot of things she will either injure herself, someone else, or destroy whatever she is in contact with. For example, today we had been at my farm working on a fence. She went with us because she insisted she could help. But it was cold and when we got home I was exhausted and just wanted to sit down. But mom wanted hot tea. Making hot tea requires the use of the hot water pot, opening tea and measuring it into the pot, pouring hot water, and ultimately pouring hot tea. She sometimes can manage measuring tea out, but she can't pour water at all. She pours it all over the place. She can't even fill a glass at the sink. But instead of realizing she can't do these things, she got upset with me that I was doing it for her and accused me of trying to take over her house (a common accusation for her that I've heard a thousand times a week). I couldn't just let her pour boiling water on herself or a cat or the floor, so I didn't have any choice but to help her with the task ... and yet, because she doesn't believe that she has any problems, she's constantly yelling at me to leave her alone. I already have POA and I'm good with her doctors and on her HIPPA forms ... it's getting mom to accept this situation that is maddening to us and we have no ideas. The doctors have told her repeatedly what the situation is and what she is diagnosed with. But she just denies they said anything. I'm losing my mind.
