My mother has undiagnosed dementia. It is undiagnosed because she refuses to be tested for it but her PCP and a neurologist states that they suspect she does. She gets confused and has lapses in time. I am currently staying with her because I lost my job, have not been able to find another one except for occasional odd jobs online and am a single parent with no support (so it's a rough time).
Today, she became quite violent (hitting and yelling insults) after I talked to her about an evaluation. She has also hidden her documents where she named me POA. I'm calling local shelters to move ASAP and calling around for any job (cashier, stock clerk, whatever is available). Should I file a police report or just move out? This is not the first time this has happened either. To be honest, I'm really scared not for only our safety but being on the streets.
