What do you think Mom needs now? She just started on Zoloft a few weeks ago for her depression and obsessions. So far it isn't working she is still depressed, doesn't "feel well" and still writing obsessive notes. It may be too soon, or she is palming the pill and not taking it. But now she is becoming mean and verbally aggressive, angry, argumentative. To me this is a different problem than depression? Today she was so awful to my sister all she did was argue until my sister finally walked out. Mom started a loud argument in the lounge of AL in front of everyone and she pushed my sister's friend. I notice if she is angry, if we touch her at all, she pulls back with a terrible nasty threatening face and almost strikes at us. At this rate it won't be long before she becomes physically aggressive. For 100 years old she is very strong (and healthy). I sent an e-mail through the doctor portal hoping the doctor will give her something else. She is able to care for her basic needs and we don't want her in memory care if its possible to avoid it. The cost of AL is high and memory care will be worse, and so will she if she is forced to let them help her and keep her confined. I'm hoping to keep her as independent as possible as long as we can.
