My mother has many medical challenges and sees her specialists on a regular basis. After various diagnotic tests and lab work, there is nothing new to explain this recent event. She now needs to be lifted and transferred to the commode, wheelchair, etc. I cannot understand why this has happened and am beginning to think it is more mental than physical. She does have dementia. When she is lifted, she screams and yells that she is going to fall. It breaks my heart to see her this way. Can anyone help me? Do the elderly reach a point of just giving up as they are too tired? Thanks.
