Will someone tell me some of the signs of dementia? My mother is driving me to an early grave. She has been diagnosed with early signs of dementia. She has always been a selfish person but lately she has expected more from me than I feel like I can deliver without a lot of resentment.She has lost all care regarding her appearance..wears a bathrobe all day, doesn't bathe, home is dirty, lets her dog use the bathroom in the house because he doesn't want to go outside, talks bad about my family to her neighbors or anyone who will listen. You name it and she is probably doing it. I'm at my wits end as to what to do. My dad passed away 7 years ago and I have no other family to help. My mother has in her mind I am going to put her in a nursing home which has never crossed my mind. I don't know if all this is dementia or is she just MEAN AS HELL and feels the world owes her something. Please, any advise would be sincerely appreciated.
