Family members with memory loss can present difficulties when they are in the stage “in between”. They may realize they have some memory loss but not to the degree of reality. Thus they argue about a need for care when they may be wearing out a family caregiver. They resist taking medications because there is nothing wrong. They want to drive a car when it’s unsafe. It can be exhausting unless techniques are learned to work with the situation rather than against it.
