How is it they do this! My Dad is the same, he can be hell for my Mum, then I walk in and he somehow makes more effort ( Occaisionally I get the full experience but usually he manages to hide it away). He gets very worked up too when the consultant comes but when she's there put's on a great performance almost making us look like we are lying or exaggerating!I explained that mum puts on the performance of a life time when there are any professionals around (or the vicar!). She said she'd try and go round on Friday and would try to spend almost an hour there to see if she changed - I told her this was unlikely as it generally takes several hours for the pretence to crack.
Dear Kate, this would be unbelievable, if I didn't believe it! I also think you should send them the information, with a covering letter highlighting your mum's symptoms.CPN said "I explained to your mum that it was time for lunch - it's all about reminding her what time of day it is and what's expected."
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy? If you do complain I would definitely point this out as one of the ridiculous suggestions you have had to cope with.
