I need help she is 78, had flu, shows paranoia, is hateful, and refuses to go to the Dr. ADLs. Help! refuses to go to the Dr. Believes ppl are messing with her all the te. Calls me accuses me of all sorts of a asinine things. She is ambulatory, can address her ADLS but doesn't. She's severely depressed (my thought).Just sits and watches TV.
Yesterday, I carried lunch out and checking on her. She had cut off the refrigerator. She denied doing it. But she does.She always believes it blows cold air on her because someone (me) made it to make her cold.On and on..its out of control.
She refuses to go to the Dr. (That I am aware).And she can act quite AOX3.
If I read one more article about how to go with what she states, I may jump..lol..all these folks evidently deal with extremely COMPLIANT FOLKS..Which she is not in any way, shape or form. Sorry, I digressed.
The refrigerator had thawed in the freezer, ruining all ll the meats ,chicken etc..ice cream melted..ice was horrible. I stood there and wondered ,,,how many times has this occurred prior to now. Just a gut feeling ,and knowing her thought process.
Well, she is livid, accuses me of messing with it. DENYING that the food is thawed..I told her, it doesn't matter how, we just need to clean it..no..no its all fine..OMG..WHAT?? Mom, this food is bad. All the groceries are bad. So ,I turned to wash the piles of dishes mounting . She fussed about she doesn't want me to do them. Again. Well, some one needs to. .she said, she would. Like she did yesterday, and the day before. Bless her heart. I'm trying to help. She is horrendous.
I left the crap filled litter box for her. She won't empty it. One cat, and it goes outside. Get that horrible ammo nia, feces piled litter box outside. Omg..
What can I do?? She refuses help!
