Hi, I'm new here but I've joined up to see if anyone can offer advice on ways in which I can help my husband. My Mother-in-Law has dementia (not entirely sure whether she has been officially diagnosed or if it's just the general opinion of the family in view of what's happening). My MIL has begun accusing my husband of stealing from her and it's now become so bad that she refuses to have him in the house or talk to him on the phone. She didn't send him a card for his birthday and now with Christmas looming we just don't know what to do as we always used to visit her on Christmas morning. Naturally this has upset my husband very badly as he and his mother used to be very close. Recently my MIL told her eldest daughter that my husband had broken in and stolen two watches from her that were on the mantelpiece. When her daughter mentioned that her mother was wearing one of the watches in question, her mother replied that he had broken back in and replaced it!! Has anyone come across things like this before? Is there anything we can do; I'm aware confrontation isn't an answer? How can I support my husband through this difficult time?
