My mom is 81, living with me and has dementia. She feels like we boss her around all the time but it's only that we're trying to help her with the things she can't do anymore. She was very independent. Now when she has an appointment, she just seems to dig her heels in and get stubborn. Everyone knows you need to be on time for appointments whether it be doctor appointments, hair appointments or church. She doesn't understand and just thinks we're bossing her around and ends up getting very hateful.
Any words of wisdom?
