Mom will be 88 in a few weeks. Believes she has a fiancé that she talks through the tv. Leaves him notes.
Recently bought a new car - hasn't driven in at least 3 years. Decided she wanted a special gift for her fiancé and spent upwards of $3,000.00. Bought herself a braclet and pendant - diamonds. Bought gifts he told her she would be better at picking out -$800.00 + necklace, 7 pairs of earrings and clothing for him. Now wants to buy a suit for him and her for the wedding.
Gets agitated when I do not see him or his Aunt in the house.
Have tried talking to her Dr. but am constantly thrown under the bus.
I have one sibling that lives far away - and says it is too stressful to help take care of her if my husband and I want to go away.
A facility is out of the question. She does not want strangers in the house.
My husband comes to her house once a week for dinner and I take her to our house one day a week
I have lived with my parents 24/7 before my Dad died over a year I was his primary caregiver and am still there with my Mom who does not feel safe alone.
Any suggestions would be helpful.
Thank You for Listening.
