She has been in the AL since July 2013. We had a good schedule at the beginning but now that she is slipping deeper into dementia, she is unsure of herself and stays very confused. The first time I ignore her calls, she had her first panic attack so now I don't know whether to answer or let them roll to voice mail. Also, she has stopped depending on the staff to help her so she is depending on me to help her with dinner time and activities. I have talked to the director and he said that as long as she was calling I knew she was ok so let them roll. Of course now that her memory is getting worse and I live 2 hours from her, I have the quilt of something happening to her and I didn't answer her call.
What to do ??????
Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
(btw she has called three times while I was typing this)
