We are all trying to deal with my Mom's and her recent diagnosis of dementia. It is hard. She is very lucid some days and seems like her old self. It makes me second question her dementia sometimes. Also she scares me because she threatens to take her life if she goes to a nursing home. She is not suicidal but how can we be sure she will be okay now that she isn't herself? How do we go about telling her she can not live alone and or be alone? I know this may be a long time back when or if anyone reading this had to tell their Mom's or Dad's this. Can anyone offer advice on how you may have gone about it?
