My 85 yo mother is barely able to walk with a walker, is frequently confused, asks the same question over and over, has trouble with ADL and yet is in absolute denial that there is anything wrong with her. My sister lives with her but needs to get away occasionally for work. we are getting to the point where we do not want her alone for more than an hour or two. When we tried to get a home healthcare provider in her house she had a fist slamming hissy fit and told us to leave her alone and mind our own business, stop treating her like an infant, etc. the shouted that she REFUSED to get anyone in the house. What to do? Last week filled the dog bowls with pecan cinnamon crunch Special K instead of dog food and when we corrected her she put it back in the cereal box! Then, after dinner, she thanked me for a nice breakfast, commented that it looked like another cloudy morning, and said it was time to make her bed!
