My Mother is in mid stage dementia and COPD, she is 80 years old. She has given up on everything. She wants me to leave her alone to "die in peace". She has been living with us for the last 4 years and I am exhausted.
I find myself getting frustrated and angry with her because she sits and watches TV or plays on her computer. I can not get her to go anywhere and she will not let people visit her because she is embarrassed by her condition. Watching her this way is breaking my heart, but also makes me angry.
I do not know what to do or say, everything I do is wrong and she says I am too pushy. Please help.
