my mom is 92. She was hospitalized for bronchitis about 4 years ago and came home from the hospital a different person. It took me 4 months to get her back to reality, but she never really recovered fully. She has been getting progressively worse and in the past 6 months she has become extremely forgetful. She insists on telling everyone that she is dying, although her doctors tell her that it's not true and that she will live to be 100! She says and does things and when I tell her what she said or did, she insists that I'm lying and making things up so I can put her away.i have told her over and over again that I would not do that to her, because I know that it's her worse fear. I have some in home care for her, but I'm not sure it's enough. She complains about the people that come in. She will say that they eat her food, which she will offer to them. She falls asleep when they are there then says that they were only there for 10 minutes, when it was hours. Sometimes tells me that they weren't even there at all. I recently took her to visit an assisted living facility. She made a face the whole time we were there. Other guests of the facility tried to engage, but she wanted no part of it. Then once she saw the apartments that they had to offer, she completely shut down and insisted on going home. You see, it wasn't large enough for her liking! She expects a 3 room apartment, with a kitchen, so that she can cook. I tried to explain to her why they don't have kitchens, but she didn't seem to understand. I've already told her that she should not be cooking when there isn't someone with her. She had an incident a few weeks ago, when she was cooking, where she couldn't figure out how to turn of the oven and after being there all morning, I had to return to her home to make sure the oven was off. It takes me 20 minutes each way without traffic, 30 to 40 minutes with traffic. She was in a complete panic and couldn't even breathe. When I got there the oven was off, but she was confused because the clock on the stove was reading 3:34, and she assumed that it was the temperature, when I explained that it was the clock, she insisted that there was never a clock on the stove. Ever since that day I have seen a quick decrease in her ability to remember things. She calls me and when I ask her why she's calling, she says that she didn't call me, I called her. She says that I'm making up the things that she says and does. She will ask her companion if she really did what I'm saying and when she tells her yes, she gets angry with her. She yells at me, curses me out and tells me to shut up, while covering her ears. I am T my wits end at this point.
