My dad has early stage dementia and they still live independently. So frustrating trying to assist them to continue to live independently. My mom is in denial and will still argue with my dad as if his arguments have much logic at all.
I hired a caregiver/housekeeper....but my Dad doesnt want her and encourages my mom to only have her come once a week. I finally found someone to mow their 3/4 acre yard and today my mom tells me my Dad doesnt want them mowing anymore. (Their mower is broken and their yard hadnt been mowed in weeks)
They live in a remote area 90 miles from me and my dad does not want to move close to me.....but..everything that i do to allow them to stay..he doesnt want it...and my mom still allows him to call the shots.
I know my Dads thinking is flawed because of dementia..but my mom cant break away from letting him make all the decisions.
