My mother-in-law has FTD dementia (previously called Picks). Normally 3-6 times a week things break and a "catastrophe" happens. She can't explain how something breaks and does not know how to fix it but then the caregivers are stuck fixing it. We have now incurred over $17K in expenses in year. This week she pulled the water hose off the toilet and flooded the top floor and basement of the house, pulled the taps off the kitchen sink and stuck a duster through a fan (killing the motor). This is only the critical stuff...the ottoman that has lost 2 legs (not sure how that happened either), the table cloth soaked in a whole bottle of soy sauce etc. that she fixates on until it gets looked after can sometimes be left until later if we can distract her.
