Situation: 96 y/o mother-in-law won't take her meds. When the caregiver tries as tactfully as possible to encourage her to take them, she gets angry and her OCD/narcissistic/paranoid behavior kicks into overdrive. Then, when by herself, she starts talking to "her voices," so there's probably some schizophrenia in there with the dementia. When she doesn't take her meds, she is totally "off the rails," so we're desperate for a suggestion or two. Taking her to the doc is a useless exercise because for 30 minutes to an hour, she can amp up enough adrenaline to put on a false front, but by the time she gets home, it's back to moans and groans and helplessness. The caregiver (an incredibly kind and giving lady, by the way) is at her wits' end and threatening to quit if M-I-L doesn't take the meds, and we're fearful that no one else would take the job! Thanks in advance for the feedback!
