My mother is 79 years old and a massive stroke survivor. She has in the last few years been getting worse and worse with her wild stories of seeing people that aren't there and telling stories that cannot possibly have happened. She has been accusing me of "taking everything" from her and treating her like a child and she is not going to take it. She is starting to tell anyone who will listen that I am mistreating her and stealing from her. Most people when they first meet my mom or haven't seen her in a while would most likely believe her because around strangers and such, she is so sweet and innocent sounding.
She has an appointment with a geriatric psychologist that she will hopefully be convinced to go to. But, will the psychologist be able to tell what is really going on if my mom is in her sweet and innocent mode???
