Jealous? Or just losing his mind? Where do I start....My mom (72 yrs old) has early AD. Currently living at home with husband (80 yrs old) - my stepfather, who is almost deaf & has health issues. I am the oldest of 3 adult children. Anyway one major problem is my stepfather seems to be in denial regarding moms illness. She can no longer manage paying bills, Dr. appts, house keeping, etc. When we try to help, he gets upset & says she can still do all the things she used to do. He thinks we're interfering & trying to run things. Mom is very happy to have help & even she gets mad with him for not wanting us to help. He won't/can't do these things & we don't expect him to. We just want to help keep them both safe and keep their bills paid & the house semi-clean! Any idea why he behaves this way? Any suggestions?
