My husband and I have “lost” so many items because my MIL collects anything that is attractive, valuable, and colorful. She picks them up and then eventually hides the item, if it is of significance. If the door to our bedroom is unlocked; she will walk in and want to shop around. ( I think that our bedroom should be ours without my MIL coming in and helping herself to things) . She is at the stage where she can’t hold a conversation and can’t complete her sentences. Also her sundowns is stressful on us; as well as her. We do have help a few times a week; but, since Covid; it has just been me and my husband. However, there should be boundaries, right? She will come into our room and take whatever she fancies. If we try to get the item; she will go to any lengths to keep it away from us. Not just in our room. She has taken keys and phones from caregivers, also. Just yesterday, I couldn’t find my wedding watch that my husband gave me last year. We looked everywhere. Finally I found it under her pillow as she was sleeping. I wasn’t happy; but, my husband thought it was hilarious. (Of course when his wallet disappeared for hours and I found it stuffed behind the sofa; he wasn’t amused) So, please give me some insight on how to handle this. Do we just need to lock our door all the time? This behavior isn’t new - my MIL has coming into our room since we moved in 5 years ago. I wasn’t thrilled; but; she wanted the company and at the time she was more aware of everything. I think that my husband and I deserve to have our own space. Am I being unreasonable in expecting this? Thank you Oh, any advice on getting her to take a bath? She often refuses to bathe and it often takes both me and my husband to get her into the tub. She often yells for help; suddenly became exhausted - seems like a behavior because she doesn’t want to bathe; insists we call the police… sometimes it takes me 40 minutes to convince her to get in the tub. Thank you for any suggestions.
