Welcome to TP @HEEHi my Mum was diagnosed about 5 years ago with Alzheimer's and we have noticed a rapid decline in her short term memory. Poor Dad is at his wits end as the love of his life has become argumentative and nasty tempered. She knows we treat her differently and constantly argued with him about long forgotten (by him) differences and imagined ( by her) new slights she tells us off constantly for treating her like a parcel and not letting her have a car. I joined to get advice should we explain every time that she is not just getting older but has a memory problem that means we have to watch her and can't let her drive . It's so sad my lovely mum is becoming a stranger. Anyone who has been through this and had any advice please reply we don't know what to do
They could, especially if they wanted to please the person, get their approval. A kind of host mode.thanks ever so much for the WELCOME. I have a very pressing question that has haunted me for some time now and that is, how easy can someone with early to mild dementia (alcohol related) be manipulated into doing something that they ordinarily wouldn't do?
