My parents still live at home, with my sister living with them most of the time. My Mom (82 y/o) has had bouts of sheer hatefulness for many years now, but it has gotten much worse recently. She is home recovering from triple bypass surgery and now refuses to take her medicine. She has had several doctors decline to treat her anymore because she is rude to the staff and misses appointments. She has lost her debit card many times, then accuses my sister or my dad of taking it. And the list goes on and on. My heart aches for all involved. My brother and I live too far away to be of much help.....our parents are in FL and we live in VA and GA. As much as my dad loves my mom, he has even acknowledged that something has to be done. So my question is, what? My mother absolutely refuses to accept fault for anything.....but she has always been that way. There is NO WAY she will agree to see a doctor for a mental evaluation. What can we, as her children, do to get our mom the help she needs? Thank you.
