Mums diagnosis came about 2 years after my Dads death. Mum lives alone and is about a 2 hour drive from where my Husband and I live. To be honest in the first couple of years, the problems were mostly related to Mums forgetfulness and inability to recall recent events. However, in the last 6-12 months, Mums condition has worsened, in as much as she now believes my Sister (who lives abroad & rarely returns) has been stealing from her. This has now escalated in as much as Mum feels she was excluded from the aftermath of Dads death, ie admin and the like. She's getting very angry with my sister and I, to the point she will not now contact my sister and refuses any contact whatsoever. I phone Mum at LEAST once a week, and do whatever I can to support her from here. Recently set up online shopping for her, applying for attendance allowance, emergency call button etc. We visit whenever possible, but probably in Mums eyes, not frequently enough. Mum is becoming quite verbally aggressive, and every phone call is dominated with what my sister has stolen and the list expands each time. It is difficult to have any normal conversation now. My reason for being on this forum now, is that I'm ashamed to say I am feeling at quite a loss as to what to to next. I no longer know my Mum, her personality has completely changed and I honestly can't cope with her. I know that sounds pathetic, but sadly it's true. Has anyone else out there had a similar experience? I would welcome any comments. Yours desperate daughter.
