For the last year, I have been filling a Sunday through Saturday pill box for my mom. She uses one in the morning and one in the evening. She takes them on her own and occasionally needs prompting. Recently though, I’ve been finding pills on the floor in her bedroom. I am concerned that she is missing doses, also that our dog may find them instead of me and ingest her medication. When I suggested that I start handing her the doses to take every day she got very angry with me. She does not want to be dependent on me. The reality is that she is very dependent on me for everything.
Any suggestions on how to navigate this touchy subject?
