My 94-yr-old mom is quickly showing signs of dementia: believing her cat speaks to her, accusing my brother-in-law of stealing groceries from her, believing people break into her apartment to use her bathroom, just some recent examples. Should I confront her with it and say that yes, we do think she is starting to have a serious problem? She has refused to go to a doctor for many years now, and I don't know how we would ever get her to go now. But if we made her aware of her actions, would that help her to think about what she's doing? It will certainly make her violently angry. She is in an I.L. apartment complex, and never leaves her apt.
