Moms health has steadily declined and although she has not been diagnosed she clearly has dementia issues. She is capable of doing things around the house and I want her to continue as this keeps her active. Problem is she overdoes things, will not pace herself, overworks her body to the point of exhaustion, and complains all the time about how much she hurts. I try to get her to take breaks. The only way I can get her to slow down or stop is to entice her with food. I've tried getting her to talk about the old days, tried music, tv, shopping (she doesn't like using her riding cart). She has diabetes, neuropathy, bronchiestasis, severe hearing loss, joint issues, overall lack of strength and other conditions. She is on oxygen full time. I get that she doesn't want to give in to her issues, but she drives Dad and I nuts with her energizer bunny routine complete with non-stop complaining. She treats me like I'm 12 and doesn't like the way I cook, clean, wash, do finances, take general care of things. How do I get her to accept the help she needs? I do everything I can as I see it, but I still work full-time and sometimes I cannot get to it when she wants it done.
