I have posted on here before about Mum who has undiagnosed dementia of some sort. She is 93, lives alone in the family home with no support - other than from me. She still refuses to have any medical or social work input - keeps assuring me that she is 'fine, just a bit forgetful, but after all, I am 93'. She is becoming very frail and unsteady on her feet, to the extent that she no longer wants to go out of the house at all - even though I am always with her. She isn't showering, though maintains that she does and isn't keen to change her clothes much. I go in now and do some housework for her, trim her nails etc but that is all she will allow - and has started to get confrontational if I suggest doing any more for her - she was never like that. I feel that we are headed for something disastrous happening like a fall or a fire and I feel unable to prevent it other than by completely over-ruling her wishes. I'm sure that many of you have dealt with a similar situation - what would you do? I hate this illness - feel that I am losing my Mum.
