My father is 74 and not able to properly care for my mother with FTD. She was in an assisted living facility but was evicted due to them being understaffed and not willing to hire. The facility told our family that mom took up to much of the aides time. My moms only communication is yes and no and the disease has made her feel the need to walk at least 20 miles a day and long into the night. My father and I take care of mom at home now because he refuses to find another option for care and refuses to let anyone into his home to help him except for myself and husband. Last week dad decided he needed a long break of which I understand because mom needs constant care and asked me to take care of her for a few weeks. I have just had my neck fused and my hubby has severe RA but I can't tell dad no. My mom was the most gentle person on this planet before she got sick, now she can get very aggressive if you try to block her path from going where she wants to go. The newest thing is she wants to go potty no lie every 20 minutes, I take her sometimes productive sometimes false alarms. Mom wears depends but when she sits down to potty she gets right back up again even while urinating. I have tried to block her from getting up, distract her with a magazine, redirect her with everything I can think of. Tonight she pushed me real hard and I crashed into the tub not expecting the push. Then she grabbed my arm and dug her nails into my arm to get past me to her walker. If anyone has experienced this or had any suggestions please I would love to hear them. I am nearing my wits end quickly. Peace be with you.
