My mother does not believe she has dementia. She only forgets the “petty things.” She resents my involvement in her care. Everyone but her realizes she needs 24/7 care and can’t live alone (she’s also an amputee) yet she tells people that she drives, cooks, cleans, etc and none of that is true. When I correct her she gets angry and looks at me as if I am the one who has “lost it.” I try agreeing with her but that makes her angry. She tells me the caregivers don’t know what she does when I know they do. I think in her mind she is in the past back when she was independent.
