How do you handle a misbehaving parent? My Mom has ALZ and lives with us whenever we have company in she refuses to look at them or answer any question that is asked. We just had company in for a week and she got to the point where she would not even look at me, I had to bend down to see her face. I know she was upset because they were here and now that they are gone she is attempting to be pleasant but I'm mad at her. How can she say 'oh your company is gone' when she refused to acknowledge them? I already feel as though I have no life because of her so I'm not about to stop having company visit us but it really bothers me the way she treats them so badly. Naturally the visitors understand her condition but they tire of the treatment as well....then it's the 'poor you doing all this for her - you have no time for yourself..etc..etc' attitude which I hate.
