Mom lost most of her sight 14 years ago but was able to live alone with some help that we hired in. Suddenly she lost a great deal of what remained of her vision and we were told eventually she would be completely blind. At that point we invited her to live with us. She accepted, 9 years ago. She has over the past few years also suffered profound hearing loss. She asks a lot of questions (she can't see after all, I understand that need) but she can never hear the answers. I stand at her bedside (she has been bedridden for a year now, needs diapers, bed baths and can't feed herself sometimes) answering the question sometimes as many as 6 or 7 times until she gets the answer. Lately this is driving me nuts.So many of the questions are just out of curiosity and I feel less and less compelled to answer every single one. I hate it that she is locked in to her own little world, and feel so badly for her, but I have less patience for things that don't actually need to be done as there are so many things I must do. Thankfully we have carers 2x a day 7 days a week to do most hygiene and dressing but we can't leave her alone for more than a couple of hours in between meals and never over night. Any advice?
