Over the past few years she has suffered increased memory loss. She confuses her dreams with reality. She becomes aggressive in her communication. She thinks her children are all going to abandon her. She takes longer than usual to get dressed, she begins tasks and doesn't finish them, she forgets she even started them. She repeats certain events, whilst forgetting others. She can't find things that's she's put away. We have taken her to doctors and hospital (govnment) and they've diagnosed depression, but it's only getting worse, even though we have taken over most of the responsibilities. Please assist.
