My mother has dementia, she is in complete denial and will not admit it. We tricked her into moving to Assisted Living and I invoked the POA. I now collect her mail and pay her bills. She is constantly in an uproar about this, she says
Where is my mail? Who is paying the bills? Where are my bank statements? How much does this place cost? I cannot afford this place? When can I move back home? I cannot tell her how much the Assisted Living costs, she will be ballistic and she can be violent. I finally broke down and told her that it was $400 a month and she is livid, that is way to expensive and of couse it is a huge lie, it is much more than that. What do I do? Should I dummy up the bank statements each month and give them to her or what?
