My grandmother is coming off of a broken hip and it has been 10 months since her accident. She has dementia and she can barley walk, however she still thinks she can cook, clean and wash dishes. She is supposed to only walk with a walker and of course its not safe for her to cook and clean. She is also leagally blind and pretty much deaf by the way.
When i leave the room she feels like that is her chance to escape and do what she wants in the kitchen. When i come back i get scared because she will be in the kitchen not holding on to her walker. I then fuss at her and tell her i will handle all of those things. Of course, then she gets angry with me and tells me to stop telling her what to do.
I know she is bored and if i could find something for her to do it may help. I am lost as to what activities a blind, deaf person can do. I guess she is in the mid stages of dementia she thinks I am 4 differnt people, talks about children that are somewhere in the house, and thinks people are in the closet. Any ideas appreciated. thanks
