I am having the same problem with my mother. We tell her all of the time that she is home, but she does not believe us. Sometimes she gets so mad that she lays down to rest for awhile and "resets" herself. I wish someone could tell us that the right thing is to do in this situation.

Living with mother and having very hard time to get her to believe me when I tell her she is at home. We start at around 2-3 in the afternoon. She starts begging me to take her home. We I try to explain we are home she says this is not my home and I hate it here. This goes on for hours, she gets mad at me or starts crying. I'm new to this, is there away to explain it to her so there is not a lot of drama?
I'm doing the best I can I'm in class 3 heart failure and some days I get so stressed I begin to have chest pain.
