How do we get our mother to take medication for mental illness?
She is 95 and very paranoid. My mother lives in an apartment, refuses to let anyone help her with her bills, hates her doctor who recommended an antidepressant for her mood swings, but she refuses to take them. She also drives and this is very alarming to us. I live in another state, mother lives near my sister and granddaughter who make sure she has what she needs, but she is very difficult.
