(Lehigh Acres, Fl)
I took my mom out of an assisted living situation and brought her home with me to live in my house. She has been with me for almost 4 months. She is accusing me of being a stranger she doesn't trust me she accuses me of writing checks out of her checkbook she accuses me of taking stuff out of her bedroom.
If I leave my checkbook's laying on the table or counter she takes them and hides them thinking that they belong to her. She refuses to go to physical therapy for her back after I explained to her that her healthcare is her choice and also the doctor explained to her that her healthcare is her choice and that her back will only get worse if she does not do the therapy.
My mom is becoming increasingly combative to the point of stating that I don't give her her medicines. I think my mom needs to see a psychiatrist for depression and other issues that I'm not aware of.
How do I get her to agree to go and see the psychiatrist. We do have health insurance that pays for most of it. I do have power of attorney with my mom however it does not allow me to force her to go to the doctor.
She has to choose to go see a doctor and discuss these issues which means she has to accept that these issues do exist.
