Mom wraps the hearing aids in tissues and puts them in the drawer, or hides them so the 'thief' won't get them. She says she doesn't want to wear them. She can only barely hear without. You have to shout and be right in front of her so she can lip read. Or write it down in large print. She can read in spite of significant demential.
But how am I supposed to communicate with her? It's crazy-making.
