How do you stand up to verbal abuse? My mom is no where near a dementia state, I know she is unwell and unhappy about it, but to flat out lash out and abuse me when I’m trying to help? Screaming at me because I’ve forgotten to bring something? Throwing her hands up in the air because I don’t know what drawer she keeps whatever in? What do I do? I think I need to hire the caregiver for the weekends, too. This is not right.
