Mom has dementia. Consistently when we run errands, she is fine, but as soon as we get home, she has anxiety attack symptoms that can last 15 minutes to an hour. Constant walking, chattering, sometimes it's "I've got to go home." and sometimes it's "Where are the children?" and sometimes it's about our pets and sometimes... well you get the idea - no specific pattern on what she seems to be anxious about. Drives me crazy, but I have found just sitting and waiting it out works best, but I am definitely open to ideas - distractions do not work.
