Up until the past two days, I have pretty well kept my patience dealing with my husband's LBD, but he has developed a new obsession, and it is driving me crazy!
For about two months (maybe more) he has not been able to figure out how to use his cell phone, and is obsessed with it. I know this is due to his decline in dementia.
He spent all morning yesterday, and two hours today, trying to make a call, but even with the side by side help I have given him, and the simple diagram I made for getting to his contact list, it doesn't work.
I suggested that he just put the phone away for a while, as he gets very frustrated, then angry, threatening to throw the phone, shoot himself, etc. Then he will calm down for a while.
Any suggestions on how to deal with this new obsession?
