How do I help my father with his distortion of time? My 94 year old father has come to the point that he can't distinguish time of day. Mid-day he'll think it's time to go to bed or he'll get up in the morning, wash, then start the same process all over again. Last night he put on his pajamas for dinner. I know he's at the point where he needs CONSTANT attention. Everything seems so hard, because he's positive he's right. I know it's part of the disease, but I am soooo tired.
