Talked to my 82 year old mother this am on the phone. She always gets down and depressed when I can’t get to her house every week for a visit. I am sick with some virus and then allergic reaction on top of it. Mom is so frail I don;t dare go near her when she I am sick. On the phone she said I’m loosing my mind and its getting worse. I don’t know what to say. I try to help her with her current problem, can’t find a recipe. She really shouldn’t be cooking at all but refuses help except me. Luckily she lives with my alert 85 yr old father. I look for bruises on her when I visit. I am afraid Dad will loose his patience with her one day. Luckily he is deaf and can turn off his hearing aide. She will ask the same question several times in a row, like 8-10 times. I talked to her MD she feels any medication will make her worse. Mom talks about being depressed, because of her inability to accomplish things she wants to do. I did try to hire her help she had a total melt down. Her memory loss is due to a failing heart.
