She's been living with us the last several years and we've tried but with kids and a husband and mom's been totally unbearable lately and I don't know what else to do. She has difficultly getting around, uses a cane but refuses to use a walker. She refuses to bathe but once a week or brush her teeth & hair daily. She gets mad when we leave the house to take the kids somewhere, when we are home she goes to bed at 4pm and is constantly miserable. This has been going on for the about the past 2 years but has recently gotten to the point where it's becoming out of hand. The kids won't have friends over cause we never know her mood and they don't want to be embarassed, she won't even talk to DH unless she needs something and is pretty much the same with me she will talk when she feels like it or needs something. I know this is more of a vent thank anything but how do you all deal with this. I know getting old isn't fun but she really makes it 100 times worse, she could have nobody and sometimes wonder if she would rather it that way. I have tried talking to her but she just walks away as soon as I start saying something she doesn't want to hear. I have a call into her Drs office to speak to the nurse but not sure how far that will get me. Thanks for listening.
