Mom with dementia is in assisted living and needs something from me every single day (often multiple times each day). She begs to go home, she claims to be deathly ill (although nothing is wrong physically), she thinks of things she needs after I leave her (just to get me to come back), she cries because no one visits her, but doesn't want visitors when people do visit, and she spends every minute that she is with me telling me how horrible I am and how I will pay for what I have done to her. I am at my wits end! I try to do everything I can, but nothing is good enough. I know I can't make her happy, but it sure would be nice if she would ease up on me a little. She calls me at least 5 times/day (I'm working) and always complains that no one cares about her and my work is more important than she is. She is absolutely miserable to be around, but I still visit her at least 3 times each week and take her out on Saturdays. I do all of her laundry and I even change her bed linens for her. Please tell me how you keep going when nothing seems to be good enough? BTW, mom has been in assisted living since September.
