My mother was diagnosed with dementia about 2 years ago. I quit my job to stay home and take care of her which is something i chose to do. Little did i know how awful this disease can be. It seems that if we stay at home (familiar surroundings) she doesn't seem to act out or have major delusions. However if we go out, even to the grocery store, etc. by that evening she goes into full delusion mode. Searching the house for unknown objects, asking where her mom and dad are (they passed away 25 and 45 years ago) and she becomes very upset. My question is, should i not take her anywhere? She always wants to go places and enjoys herself while there but the evenings are always a mess. It is also nice that I get a chance to go out even if I have to take her with me but I'm not sure its good for her and I don't want to cause her undue stress/harm. I would value your opinion! We have the opportunity to get Disneyland passes and would go all the time. I think my mom would love it but again, I don't want to make her evenings more difficult for her.
