After presenting as confused, aggressive, resentful, and angry for the last 8 months or so, my mum has suddenly become almost compis-mentis again. Took her to see a physio last week and she held a coherent and relevant conversation, full of confabulation but very believable. Since then has been constantly harping on having her knee replaced, which there is no doubt she needs. I have been told by her GP she will not be offered one as she is unable to comply with physio and refuses drug treatment, (although in her head she is complying). She is also really angry with me because I have taken control of her finances (her spending on inappropriate and expensive items over the phone had endangered her meeting her monthly financial commitments). She’s so lucid at the moment I’m finding it difficult to justify my action. I’m the only one with such responsibility, because only me and my brother are involved in her care (she is not well liked) and I have POA. I feel exhausted and resentful about this situation, especially as I have discovered me and my siblings are being excluded from family events (a wedding and the death of an uncle in hospital - we were only told after he had died) because the family do not want her to attend, and we have been “tarred with the same brush”.
