I care for an elderly parent who has Alzheimer's disease. She is stubborn and does not co-operate with me, but those who stay with her when I am at work say she is sweet. She knows my voice, so I think she resents me taking charge. Please Help!
I am having a lot of trouble being a caregiver for my husband. Am I alone in having these feelings?
Is there a place to go to find services in my area?
My mother is 96 and in the last stage of Alzheimer's. She is blind but recognizes my voice on most days. Somedays she talks really loud in words I can't understand and if I ask her why she talks so loud or screams she says she doesn't know why. Saturday I told her if she kept screaming I would have to leave (she lives in a nursing home) so she held my hand tightly, stopped screaming and went to sleep. I visit my mother most mornings before work and every afternoon after work. Do you think my mother is aware of her outburst and can really control them or was that just a coincidence that she stopped screaming? Are constant loud outburst part of the disease?

Thank you for being there.
My mother has mixed dementia and lives with me. She is 95 1/2. She is very fearful and pain averse. She does not want to wash, brush her teeth, or dress. Do you have some hints for me on how I might get her to cooperate. Thank you
