The crying won't stop! I know the "I want to go home" is very common in Dementia patients but is it common for them to cry almost all day?
My mom will start after breakfast saying she has to go home and that she needs to call my brothers to pick her up. I tell her ok, we will call after they get out of work. She will not budge, she just cries saying what will she do now if she can't find a ride home. She keeps saying she needs to go home to her little kids who are home alone. Maybe I made a mistake by youtubing dementia videos because non of them show the patient crying, upset almost hyperventilating like my mom. I feel horrible! She came to live with me full time because she would call me and my brothers around the clock from her home saying she wanted to go home. But now I feel that I'm making things worse by taking her out of her home. She is so miserable! I'm just trying to help.
