Hi and Welcome
I am the caregiver for my dad and looked after my mom tiol she passed away last yr in March....
This AD demetia all the names it can be rederred as is a Horrid disease hun and you need to have support
Have you thought about
caling some of the places I have listed or have you read some of the older posts that have info........... 'Also there is a fantastic book called ""The 36 Hour Day " I have re read this book many times and in Our HW resources there is alot of other books as well to look at and other input to help out
It is hard to deal with this I know and what is happening to your G is REAL to her it is happening to HER she cannot help this BUT medication CAN most often
There are many good meds out there for this problem and for the AD itself ......
I see she doesnt want to go to the doctor ? I would think an intervention may calm you and your other family members but you need also to be careful that she doesnt turn on all of you's and shut you out .that is a distinct possibilty I am sad to say ....
You have to keep in mind as well she is believing all are out to get her ......I am so dang sorry that you are dealing with this and your family as well
I would not say no dont do an intravention but if you do keep reassuring her that it is out of love for her and I can tel you love her deeply and are scared for her.......
PLEASE emial me at your convenience and I can help you out a little more and I am sure others will have some input
DO read past post and threads
The one that is "Padraig my wife .my story" is a good one and he has written a book about
his journey with his wife
Alos I have one up for "Caretakers " and emotions and feelings we tend to go thru
PLease DO stay with us and get the support you need
Gentle ((((( )))))) to you your family and your Grandma
