Hi there, my parents just removed my grandmother with dementia from a nursing home at my urging so that we could take care of her. She has no physical problems or medications aside from an inhaler with COPD.
We are struggling greatly with her constant divisiveness. She picks a fight all day, saying that we hate her, trying to manipulate one family member against another, and repeating the same psychosis about how we are jealous of her and her wisdom. This happens with zero provocation at any time and it is exhausting. I find myself avoiding her because I am weary of it. My parents are upset with me for suggesting we could do this.
Any ideas for newbies who haven't a clue? The conditions in her home were awful and she was so lonely but don't know if we can all handle this day after day.
