The worst issue my mom has now with dementia is loosing track of time, not knowing what day it is, confused about meal times etc. However, there are little things she does that I'm wondering if they are part of the dementia: 1) She tells me the "people in her AL dining room are are old and ugly." (she is 84) 2) She will talk about people being fat and yet she is 208. 3) She will hone in on something about the way someone looks such as their teeth or nose and comment about it. Not directly to them but inappropriate none the less. 4) When the aide comes to bring her meds in her AL place, they are in plastic packets, with the name of the meds listed. She saves these empty packets and got very mad when I tried to throw them away. 5) Walking down the hallway she might notice a scuff on the wall and then proceed to tell me "this place is such a mess. The baseboards need to be painted, etc." The place is nice and clean, in my opinion. 6) Extremely worried about how she looks, if her navy blue pants are blue or black and if they precisely match the color of her shirt. All of these things have been going on for awhile but I really didn't think it was dementia but could it be? Or is she just odd?
