She is the primary care-giver for her 90 yr old husband who has signs of dementia/memory loss and they live on their own with no care. They are unwilling to explore any alternatives such as assisted living or to have care givers come in, and she has become increasingly angry, frustrated and mean towards him and us. We recently tried to set boundaries regarding our own involvement if she is not going to accept any help for herself as we feel sucked into a vortex of emotional manipulation and drama. She says she's 'sharing feelings', but it is much more than that, and there is no reasoning with her. Her memory and other skills are good, but is there a form of emotional dementia that could be impairing her ability to understand situations and the impact she has on others?
