Taking care of gramaw.
Hi. My name is Angel and my gramaw has dementia. I have been taking care of her for about three years now. Since my mama died. Me and my gramaw have always been close. Our doctor said she would do best in a camper since she has regenerative macular desease as well. He was right. I took care of her in her home for a while. Then moved her into a camper near my home. Now she lives in my backyard. She forgets something as soon as she does or hears it. :D She gets confused too. Like, she might think the air conditioner is her oxygen. She hides stuff constantly. In really weird places. The other day I found her teeth in a paper towel that was in a pair of socks that was in a house shoe that was in a drawer. Silly her. She runs her coffee back through the pot AFTER she puts cream and sugar in it! She takes her hair down after I put it up. Constantly messes up her t.v. unassembles her oxygen and gets pretty creative with her breathingvtreatment and the medicine. She over feeds that fat ole dog of hers. :D She folds all her dirty clothes up and puts them in with the clean. And now...well, she is eating her coffee grounds. Yep. Gets her self a spoon and her coffee canister and has a big time. I have ask her why and she consistently answers with, " Cause I like em" well, I reckon but she is giving herself caffein withdrawel headaches.
