My sister and I have moved my mother in, six months with each of us due to increase falls and decrease memory. I was a nurse for 40 yrs. and thought I could handle just about anything but the memory loss is just about more than I can take. Asking me the same questions sometimes several times a day. The thing that I don't understand is someone can tell Mom gossip or about an accident and she will repeat those details for weeks but tell her one of her meds was discontinued and she will ask everyday if it was. She is also very intrusive into people's lives. Example: if people miss church, she asks them why they weren't there, where were they? I know she has a genuine concern for people's spiritual walk with God and worries they'll quit attending church but my sister and I keep telling her you can't intrude on people's business like that , she gets mad and does it the next week. She also says outloud everything she sees. There is a cow in the field, there is a man walking, there is a truck towing a truck. Everything that's in her head has to come out her mouth. You and I see those things but don't verbalize it, she sees it and says it. Every sound she hears, she wants to know what it is? Sounds we all know and just ignore, she says, what is that sound? I ask her why she asks about sounds thinking it's her hearing, she got a weird look, and a blank stare and said, maybe I have dementia. All of the above is very difficult to handle. She does not have funds for ALF and us not nursing home appropriate yet. Any suggestions?
