My mother, over whose financial and household matters I have taken responsibility, often becomes enraged and hurt when I try to explain things (albeit as simply as possible). She insists that I include her in decision-making, despite being increasingly unable to follow the process. When I go ahead and make decisions, whether with her or not, she usually doesn't remember and it quickly falls into argument and conflict. While I do my best to not to take her outbursts personally, it's becoming increasingly more difficult. How do handle her anger, frustration, and hurt feelings while continuing to help with her care? She is mobile, recognizes her family, and can come across as very coherent, but this can evaporate in an instant. As her closest relative, I have become the focal point of my mother's rage and anger.
