My mum fell down the stairs a few years ago. Physically she has recovered pretty well and mentally I'd say the effects have been relatively mild. But she's not the same person she was. More outspoken and critical of people, especially my dad. More compulsive - discount/deal hunting is now a daily obsession. Among some other things. However, in her view she's made a full recovery. I can't help thinking she could make a fuller recovery if she'd start by accepting there are things that have changed. But how to convince her that there is a first step worth taking? Anyone similar experiences or suggestions would be a great help.
