Dementia

My mother who has recently been diagnosed with mild to moderate dementia refuses to acknowledge her condition. She takes very good care of herself and is physically healthy, but has stopped paying bills, claims a "little person" is living in her house, misplacing all her clothes, and stealing her medication. She buys extravagant items and clothes daily (we've taken control of her bills and credit cards) but she loses her keys, hides her medication, can't remember passwords, etc.,. The neurologist we took her to prescribed a couple typical medications and she won't take them, calling him a quack. We have POA and medical POA and my siblings and I would like in home care for her but know she will be furious. Any suggestions how to present this to her in a non-threatening way? Any mention of her needing help sends her in a rage.
