My MIL is fixated on her TV she says it does not work. She phones and says we did not pay her bill (it is included in her rent) or batteries are dead in remote. I went over and TV works. She is still phoning lots about the TV. We will go over today and change batteries in remote. This started with her expecting to go to her grandsons grad dinner. She was not invited. We are going to try to take her to the grad ceremony. Not sure if she will make it or we will go crazy taking her. We have to take a 6:30 am ferry and then the bus. We will be over 11/2 hours early and be downtown. I know others have said it is too much for her but we will try. I do not want to drive over ferries are too busy and hard to get parked downtown. We would probably have to walk much farther. Taking the bus we do not have far to walk. If she can't get up early we will not go. It will depend on how she is the morning of.
Can people with dementia make up things to try to get you to visit them. I am not sure if that is possible or not. She said she was lonely (she lives in independent care) she has friends. A few hours later she is demanding we come over to fix her TV.
