I find each time Mom goes through one of her dementia phases, she loses more of her memory, or something is different.

Started by

Pt 2...She loved her tea "hot" but now it's too hot..recently a nurse came by and saw a complete change as she was here..dementia is progressing. 16/02/22


Progressing is what dementia does.

What is a "dementia phase" in this context?

Do you have a question for us?
An episode of her behaviours, she loses part of herself
Can you expandand explain a little more?
Its like she slips into a place, and she gets made, or she goes back to the 1940's and after this..her behaviour comes out different. Likes change, or forgets. The last 2 wks she hasn't completed her knitting..she forgot how. All afternoon and this evening she hasn't touched them...she is an avid knitter
What is an episode of behavior like? She throws a tantrum? She falls down? She sits and weeps for hours? Just what are these episodes like? How long do they last?

But most of all, what is your question for us?
