Hello, My very bright, stubborn, 82 year old Mother has Alzheimer's. We never had the heart to tell her of her diagnosis when she would have comprehended it. She firmly believes she is getting old with lapses of memory. My Mum is a widow living nr Cambridge, I live in Bristol (I have epilepsy) my 2 brothers live in America She wont except help. We were able to get her carers through the front door under the pretext they were cleaners - whom she believed came only once a week & the weekly Tesco food drops she receives - 'she gets from her frequent walks into town'. We took her to a wonderful care home for a cup of tea & she point blank refused to walk through the door. We've had to change care companies whom she wont accept, they do get in the door but with much aggravation from Mum. Her local community care worker is monitering the situation but conversations have turned to sectioning.. i.e she cannot spend another winter in her house, How do you help someone who cannot comprehend her situation, hold the thread of an explanation, believes she is being lied to? Help please..
