Living with dementia and hearing loss in a new environment has not gone smoothly. For example, Mom hides her glasses and hearing aides which stops our weekly 45 min visits because she can't carry on a two way conversation. I've arranged to have her devices protected for safe keeping at night. I had a visit with her today but it ended with us arguing because she wasn't wearing her glasses or her hearing aids. I requested help from the AL staff which was granted but no hearing aids could be found during a quick surface check in her apartment. I requested the staff continue to research the source of the problem before I abruptly has to cut the visit short. On my way home the front desk called to say Mom had the hearing aids all the time in her walker zipper bag. Mom has no idea how they got there but she handed them over to staff. Is she playing tricks on us all or what?
