Mom is driving him places he wants to go but when they get there he gets angry because he doesn't remember it the way it looks now. Dad asks for my sister and when mom takes him to see her, he doesn't recognize her and gets angry at mom for not taking him to see my sister. Mom is trying being loving and caring to him and it doesn't help. When dad is not himself mom will keep telling him what is right for today but dad is lost in yesterday and mom gets frustrated. Dad is 86 years old and mom is 80 and she is trying to take care of dad the way she did her mom, dad, brother, sister and my dad's dad. But it is not working and mom is with him 24/7. We (the kids) have tried to get mom to let us help more but she says he does better when it is just the two of them. When we go to visit we can only stay about 30 minutes before dad starts trying to run us off and mom says it would be better if we just left so she could try to calm him down. I'm at a loss as to how to help mom except to pray for God to help her. Any suggestions on how we or I can help mom with how to deal with dad when the dementia has a hold on him. My brother tried calling his doctor to get him on medicine that might help to calm him down but when he went to get him dad refused to go. Normally when my brother asks him to do something he will do it but not this time and mom told him to let it go. So he called the dr. back and told them dad refused to come and this is the dr. that diagnosed him and they said if he would not come in then the only thing left was for mom to go see the magistrate and have him committed. I don't see the problem with the dr. calling him in a prescription for something to calm him down without him having to go and see her when she (the dr.) knows how he is acting. Any help for mom would be appreciated because I'm at my whit's end trying to help her (as is my brothers & sisters).
