I have a cousin of my mom's who works in medical lab, she had to deal with both her parents having alzheimers/dementia so I have no problem talking to her about how I feel, however, my mother (her mother is the elderly one we 'take care of') doesn't really seem to grasp reality. I constantly tell her things about her mother, things she does, says to me, does to me, ect, but she just dismisses it as normal older people behavior when it's not, but dementia, my cousin knows both me and my gm need help (possibly my mom?) and is really worried about us but my mom doesn't understand. My mom's cousin and me have convinced my parents to have a meeting with us about the situation, so I'm glad, but we don't know how it will go obviously, but I'm still a little nervous. I feel a bit better having my cousin (and her daughter with psychological knowledge) on my side but I just don't know. I'm just glad they are on my side. Anyone else have a problem like this?
