She is in what we believe to be Stage 5 dementia (she refuses to see a neurolgist) which has increased confusion and rage episodes. I am her only child. I have had to go grey rock with her in past and ours is a superficial relationship because she has no empathy or interest in me passed what I can do for her. I do not wish her ill but am not willing to jeopardize my mental health. Given her rages and accusations I would also fear being accused of abuse. She can call us three days in a row without remembering especially if she is nursing a grievance against someone. We have no POA or sharing of info with her doctor. I live 25,000 miles away but people in her small community are not happy with her driving or rages.
