Hi AC Forum,
I hope you are having a good Sunday!
My dementia mom (96 yrs old) cannot focus on anything for more than 2 minutes. She is so fixated on the past and getting away that those thoughts are continually on her mind.
I tried watching TV (Lucille Ball program) last night and she keeps looking out the window or looking down and never even watches the TV. There are funny parts where I laughed and you probably could have waved your hand in front of her face and wondered if there was anybody home.
She woke up this morning asking why she is at our house (now 16 months and same thing day after day). I have work I have to do at home before I go to work tomorrow. Washing, house cleaning, meal prep and I don't have time to babysit her and sit with her all day long.
Caregivers find her frustrating and I'm lucky they come during the week when I am working.
Your experiences or thoughts?
