My grandma hasn't been diagnosed with anything YET but she recently moved into an independent living community near me (her granddaughter) and I am realizing how terribly confused and negative she is all the time. She has regular hallucinations, doesn't pay her bills, can't remember what day or month it is, and all she does is COMPLAIN about how terrible her life is. Half the time I have no idea what she's talking about because she uses the wrong words and doesnt make any sense. We waste so much time trying to help her with everything and she is so miserable to be around..... I just hate it.
She gets so confused about everything and then when I try to correct her she argues with me. For example, she quit paying her bills right around a year ago and every single bill I have to argue with her that she didn't pay it and needs to. She gets mad at me for intervening.
How do I get her to let us manage her bills? Do I forcefully tell her that she can't do it anymore, or do I try to reason with her and get her to agree with me?

Anyway, I've missed you all. I've never been off of DS for days at a time like this. I...
