I'm looking for advice. My mom and dad were place in a nursing home a year ago. Dad is 92 and mom is 94. They are in a room together. They both experience dementia--mom more than dad.
Mom has had days when she would verbally attack me. Saying that I stole all of her things. She also has moments when she would very angry about me bringing candy to dad. Dad loves Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Sometimes she is ok with him eating them and other times she pitches a fit saying they give him cancer. In the past it has been a day of this and then she'd be ok for a few day.
The last 3 times I have went, she has verbally attacked me. One time she hit me. One time she threw things at me. Again she is saying I stole things. One of the items I stole was her glasses which I showed her were laying on her table. I have not been back in a few days because it is upsetting and I do not want to be attacked again.
Has anyone else experienced this and how did you handle it?
