My mother has developed certain behaviors that my fiance says do not bother him, such as going to the kitchen and watching what he is doing like washing dishes or fixing something to eat. He calls her a nuisance. I agree she may do these things but she has done them before the dementia developed. Maybe I should have thicker skin, but it bothers me when he says these things to me because she still is my mother. This then results in conflict and hurt feelings. I just want support not criticism of my mother's habits.
