Mom has moderate dementia, although she is very physically fit. She's in complete denial most of the time about her abilities and recently moved in with me after her husband of 34 years passed away. We had a caregiver for four hours the other day, but I tagged along. My plan was to continue to tag along and gradually back out and have the caregivers more often. Mom insists she doesn't need a babysitter and I tell her that it's help for me because I will have to start going back to work soon. Any success stories of bringing in caregivers to a reluctant dementia parent???
