My dad has AD which i have come to terms with as i knew he was ill for some time,but my mum refusing to admit it and doesnt seem well herself. She is beginning to come to terms with it and isnt coping at all well but refuses to accept help and insists the doctors and nurses at the hospital dont know what theyre talking about. As a result I dont think dad getting the care he could. Im worried about her as dad is fine as long as hes told where hes going and who hes with but mums behaviour is totally erratic. One day she'll be in tears obviously devastated and finding it hard to cope, the next she pretends there is nothing wrong. She is showing signs of confusion herself which may be symptomatic of stress associated with caring but will not allow herself to be assessed. Im so worried that they could put themselves in danger by leaving cookers on etc and that they arent managing their financial affairs and could be taken advantage of. They want to move closer to me but dont seem capable of selling a property at the moment but i cant do anything as its in their names. Does anyone have any experience of dealing with someone who needs help but is incredibly stubborn and wont accept it ? I just dont know where to turn for help.
