I am new to this forum and welcome any and all the advice I can get. I moved in with my Mom & Dad in 2009 to help take care of them as they aged and became in need of more assistance. My Dad passed away in 2013 at the age of 82 from a massive heart attack. That leaves me to care for my Mom who was diagnosed in 2005 with Parkinson's disease. She started showing signs and was diagnosed with Parkinson's Dementia in 2014. It has been a steady decline since then. She is now 85 years old and is in late Stage 4 of Parkinson's and has lost 32 pounds (unintentionally) in the past 12 months. She has been hospitalized 3 times in the past 2 years for severe UTIs/dehydration because I can't get her to drink enough water. I have a 40 ounce pitcher on the counter and tell her she needs to drink what's in the pitcher every day. She acknowledges that she understands, then just completely "forgets". She has about 3 good hours in the late morning/early afternoon, but her mood/behavior goes down hill after about 3pm. She is mean-spirited, negative, stubborn, argumentative, narcissistic, passive/agressive, but is still my Mother. She is at a stage where she can't be left alone even for an hour (has attempted to call the police because she isn't good with time anymore and thought I was gone longer than 2 hours ... I was only gone for 1 hour). I have family and friends who help out and are a great support for me, but I am getting burnt-out. I am fearful that the amount of frustration caused by my Mother will eventually push my other family and friends away. Right now my main concern is I am worried about her unintentional weight loss and dealing with her constant negative, passive/aggressive behavior. Any ideas and suggestions will be very much appreciated.
