Has anyone dealt with the area agency on the aged and can they help us navigate getting Medicare and possible veterans benefits? What experiences have you had dealing with them verses APS ?
My husband just got to his moms in hopes of convincing her to come stay here while his dad is hospitalized. She refused this a few days ago but maybe she'll come this time. He went during the day verses evening and she's afraid of the dark. The police called yesterday and told him they've been out there everyday since his dad was hospitalized for lost items she can't find and her setting off her home alarms . He said they are pretty much tired of going there constantly - come get her!
Secondly, how do I entertain a very nervous, high strung, person with dementia and no hobbies? All she likes is Fox News and we don't have cable. Do they enjoy dusting? Folding laundry? She is constantly moving things around and never sits. Theres not really anyplace here to move around. We have a small older home (1928) with three rooms and one bath. There's no way to get away from each other- lol .
