My mother just turned 90. She was diagnosed with Vascular Dementia 3 over years ago, but she may have had this condition much longer than that prior to her diagnosis which we assumed it was just age related forgetfulness. My mom’s doctor says that she is at mid to late stage of the disease. She’s having delusions that my wife is stealing towels and linens from our cabinets to which my mother always threatens to call the police or to have us kicked out and/arrested. I’ve attended classes and read many extensive articles on this disease and how to address the matter tactfully but I’m having difficulty managing this issue. Prior to this disease, my mother was a very strong, independent but also skeptical and somewhat narcissistic kind of person that never wanted help from anyone. Her strong willed personality doesn’t seem to make the situation any easier. My wife and I avoid arguments with her as to avoid making her angry/agitated. The accusations happen a few times a day even to the point where my mother would wake in the middle of the night to accuse my spouse of the theft. This has been repetitive daily for the last 2 months. Her doctor has us bring her to the hospital periodically to check if a urinary tract infection is contributing to her condition. No infections so far. It feels as if we’ve tried every piece of advice recommended to us but nothing seems to change. Is there a better way to address this situation? Am I missing something?
