Background: I just discovered my birth mother in 2017. I knew immediately that something was wrong. She lied to me from the minute we met. She was not able to follow instructions when she was trying to help me on my job. In 2018, I was able to get her diagnosed. She has dementia, but she still works. I had to take her car away – Her doctor did this. I also believe she has other mental illnesses. I am certain that she has learning disabilities and ADHD. She is very active and she still works. She does not believe she has dementia. She has anger outbursts that include trying to jump out of a moving car and she often threatens that she’d rather be dead. I would like to help her, but I don’t feel that it would be safe for either of us, to take her into my home. She is to advanced for assisted-living and I don’t want her to lose her dog going into a nursing home. She is living alone right now, but that is not good. Fortunately or unfortunately, she is still functioning at a level where people don’t realize that she has dementia. She has all of the classic behavior: repeating stories, losing things, lying, getting stories wrong even if she’s not purposefully lying, and paranoia that people are stealing things from her. Her anger outbursts are the hardest thing for me to handle and I have felt that I have been in life threatening situations when I am driving her on a highway and she’s trying to jump out. At one point I was holding her seatbelt for over an hour until we got to our destination. Another time, I had to hold her seatbelt, she was able to get my hand to her mouth and bit my finger and permanently injured it. Advice?
