Every Thursday after dropping off my granddaughter I go to my parents home to fill up mom’s meds. For the past few weeks meds are amiss....missing from certain days and mom blames me for not filling her med organizer correctly. I use the same method I use for my husband (been doing this for years) then double check to make sure everything is accounted for. I did not screw up. Now I’m wondering where the meds went. She does have mid level dementia which I fear is getting worse. My dad is in charge of her Tramadol (she has no access), but I am concerned since many of her other meds need to be taken on a daily basis.
Also dad just paid an exorbinate amount for hearing aids (miracle ear). After MANY adjustments she does not wear them. Says they are too heavy and cause headaches and her veins to pop out on her temples (not). We are wits end between missing meds and her not wearing her hearing aids. The audiologist told her she needs to wear them for eight hours at a time to get acclimated and that this would be uncomfortable in the beginning.....to no avail.
Has as anyone experienced this? Any input and advice would be much appreciated......thank you!
