I have been caring for my Mom for years now, 24/7, She is now 89 years old and has Alzheimer's; physically she is well, but for about six months or longer, her personality has changed drastically, going from gentle and caring to now short tempered, very hurtful with her words and demands. Can anyone help me with this? This, for me, is the worst part of all of this with Mom, and yes, I know it's "not her" but the disease and all that....but it still hurts, and when my sister comes to see her, she is the same as she used to be....???? Also, I should mention that I quit my job to care for her in my home, and I have four other sibs, all close by, but only one sis helps when she can and will stay with Mom when I need to see the doctor or buy groceries...and those are my only outings and my only break from my Mom (and hers from me). I simply will not place her in NH or AL, as a former legal guardian for elderly/disabled, I just cannot fathom that idea, I just need some support, please.
