Find Care & Housing
It's possible, but very difficult to tell. Mom has always refused to share with us, her feelings and concerns. Her way of addressing things are by yelling and walking away from us. She thinks that we are trying to say that she is crazy. Our response to her was that we are very concerned and that we are noticing things are a bit different with her. Does not want to hear it. We have noticed the changes in her, such as missing appointments, forgetting to pay bills on time, and misplacing things on a regular basis. She easily becomes rattled, frustrated and cries when things are not found easily. Our biggest concern is that our grandmother suffered from Alzheimer's for many years before passing.

Is this parent someone who would rather ignore a possible problem because they're afraid to find out it might be serious? Sometimes a person would rather stick their head in the sand so to speak, out of fear. I'd ask my parent WHY they don't want to see a doctor, when that doctor could be helpful. It doesn't ALWAYS have to be bad news, I'd tell them.
