Mum is in the beginning stages of dementia at 95 and has been in the hospital because of pancreatitis and a gallstone. I brought her home today and she is more confused than she's ever been. Want's to "go home" to her home she lived in as a child. She keeps trying to leave the house because she thinks she has to meet some men that want to buy her 1941 Ford, and she's talking about people that haven't been alive in many years. I can't calm her down. Is this because of the change in her normal routine? Will things go back to what I considered "semi normal"? I don't know how to deal with this behavior. I go along with as much as I can and try to pacify her but when she tries to get up and leave, I'm running around dead bolting the doors. I finally got her to bed because one of my cats who has really taken to my Mum, went in and snuggled on the bed with her. Hope that continues throughout the night!
