Hi all, my mother does not recognize that she has dementia. She's still taking care of herself in her own home but she's isolated herself and I see it taking a toll on her memory. I see her most days but I live 20 minutes away and it's wearing on my like crazy. She's gotten to be very short tempered and uncooperative when I try to help her. I'd like her to move into independent living in a senior community that also has assisted living and memory care and that's closer to me so she can have some interaction with other people but she's resistant. The community director understands her situation and is onboard with Mom going into independent living rather than assisted. But I also worry that Mom will still sit in her apartment by herself and than neither of us will be better off. I've taken Mom on a tour but it didn't help much. She says that she wants to be active but her actions and words don't match. I've thought about day care (which I know I'd also have her take her to kicking and screaming) but it would be an hour round trip twice a day for me. Does anyone who has been in this boat have any advice for me? I'm afraid to do nothing and I'm afraid to make the wrong decision.
