My dad is actually the caregiver for my mom. She’s been suffering from paranoia (a group of people after her, being stolen from, etc) for 10 years and has what we called psychotic episodes. Even back then. We tried and tried but she always refused help. Fast forward to 2019 and we lose my sister to suicide with paranoia symptoms that remind us of mom. 2020 brings her turning on my dad, accusing him of cheating on her. We live out of state and my dad didn’t truly let us know how bad it was. Thankfully his brother was nearby to help with several bad times. We went through APS and he was given guardianship, so she had to go in for evaluation. They say it’s degenerative dementia of Alzheimer’s type. Today she is putting on a scarf though its 90 out. We never talked to a doctor about this diagnosis. What should we expect now? I witnessed her episode last night and wept for what my father endured on his own the last year and a half.
