My mother in law has Alzheimer's. Okay, I know it is normal for them to ask over & over the same question, however is this major obsession with her son (my husband) normal? We finally have hired a caregiver this week & we have been trying her out. I am upstairs (mom thinks I am gone) & I am monitoring the situation. I spent an hour counting how many times mom asked "Are they coming" I counted 192 times in one hour. I have been the full time caregiver for 3 years. Mom has always been obsessed with son asking "Is he coming"...NOW that we are both gone it is "Are THEY coming". Is it possible she has some behaviorial disorder along with the Alzheimers? She also gets extremely mad often. ALL she cares about is that her son is in her presence. Basically if she does not get her way she will throw things, yell, etc...until he is there.
Her Dr. also agrees that this is an Obsession with her son. Any suggestions on how to get rid of this obsession? PLEASE HELP!
