App: Alzheimer's & Other Dementias Daily Companion
Your On-the-Go Guide for Dementia Care Advice
How do you deal with a mother who is always accusing you of stealing from her?
That’s a common question asked by many sons and daughters caring for a parent with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias. The accusation scenario could just as easily be replaced with: who won’t eat her food, who refuses to shower, who hides her underwear in my purse, who curses at me, who urinates in the bedroom floor vent, or who doesn’t recognize me.
While the situation at hand may differ from day to day and from person to person, the core question remains:
How do I deal?
