My 85 year old mom has lived with us for close to 4 years. My partner is really her primary caregiver. We moved her into our home when she was not able to get the care she needed.
She has arthritis, A-FIB, congestive heart failure and a colonscomy (that she cannot change on her own). She complains more and more now; it really has become a source of tension for everyone. I think she is clinically depressed but she won't admit it and seek help.
The complaining is about everything - too cold, the food is not right, the pain she feels, etc. She will not go out with us just to get out of the house but when we go, she always insinuates that we should not be gone.
I am at wit's end. I really am.
