Looking for suggestions. MIL has severe anemia, osteoporosis (5 vertabrae have broken so far) thalasemia and mild/moderate dementia. This week she had Reclast infusion after recently the 5th vertabrae broke. Refusing, complaining, objecting, sullen but submitted. Now the DR says she needs another iron infustion because her ferritin reserves are extrememly low. How much explanation is in line? I usually explain once (she will ask 100 times)and then I've begun to say, "Your son loves you very much and you can trust him. He will take good care of you. If the doctor and he tell you you need this, please listen to them. Otherwise you will get very sick." I just keep repeating it. She cannot comprehend an explanation it seems. Is this appropriate? Would it be better to try to keep explaining?Any suggestions on how to get her to the doctor with so much drama and trauma?
