What can I do to stop my grandmother from refusing to throw old food away. I go and clean out her kitchen (frig, freezer, and cubbards) that have expired foods only to find that she has gone into the dumpster and gotten them out. I am frustrated beyond belief and when I confront her she tries to lie to me. I am the one to takes her to the grocery store to buy her food so I know what she has. She won't throw anything away. This isn't just in her kitchen its in her entire home. I don't live in the same town so I can't be there 24/7 to make sure she is okay all the time. I just found out that she collected out dated eggs from the garbage and put them back in her frig. They were in a hot garbage pail for 4 days. I don't want to see her get sick but she just fights me and lies and and then cries and starts to shake. Please......help she is healthy in body but definitely not in mind.
