We need a daily routine at home.
I am living with demented parents, Mom moreso than Dad. I'm finding after living here 3 months, that Mom gets "bad" when she has nothing to do. I think some sort of routine or daily structure of time will help but living in her house I don't know where to begin. I don't even know if Mom would even cooperate with a routine. Some times she is sort of normal, but not that often. Most of the time is spent in delusional thinking which gets really bad. I need a very simple but continuous routine to get her into. One that she can easily follow. Any suggestions? I'm afraid at the rate the dementia is progressing this may be the last chance for any kind of normalcy here at home. Otherwise i will be the one to join them in the mentally unstable condition!!!
