Mom is 72 with end stage dementia. I am always the target of her anger and frustration, and I understand this. Lately, when I have to tell her “no” about something, she then ignores me by refusing to acknowledge anything I say or do. Example: Mom can’t walk, but thinks she can. She will try to climb out of a recliner without putting her legs down first. I stop her before she hurts herself. She then gets very exasperated with me. Huffing and pouting. When I try to find out what she wanted or needed, she won’t talk to me. She folds her arms and turns her head. She breathes deeply and blows it out her mouth like she is trying to calm herself. For the next hour she won’t speak to me, acknowledge me, or do anything that I ask. If my husband asks her things, she is happy and pleasant. What to do? I am here with her by myself most of every day. I am worried she is going to try to do something she shouldn’t out of spite.
