I do not understand this disease. Dementia and the ability to focus oneself on the same subject.
My Mom's companion ( Howard) walked out on her on 4/29. I do not blame him. He could no longer take her physical abuse and emotional abuse. I have had her in my care since. I did get her on meds and she has been so calm. She owns her home but, she cannot live there anymore. Her focus is only on getting Howard back.. I do not understand how she can remember that he left when she cannot remember what was said toher 5 minutes ago. How does one help her to get him out of her mind? It is so sad to see her cry and ask me to help her get him back.......If I could, I would..That is the only thing that would make her happy.
I do not understand this disease..It does not matter how much I read, I just do not get it.
