My mom has had dementia for 3 years and is still in denial, with her dementia and her kidney failure. She is worried about my dad because he is in and out of the hospital. She concentrates on the minor/ little things, that don't need to be worried about right now. When I tell her not to worry she gets mad and she says "you don't know, you're just a kid" (I am 31). How do I help her be more aware of her ilness without making her upset? How do I make her understand that she did well raising me? I feel like a little child again, and I don't know if i am making her feel badly for (me) taking over the house. I don't think she is coping well with that.
