How can I respond in a way that satisfies her? Mom has lived with me for 16 years. I brought her here because she was close to drinking herself to death. No drinking allowed. She improved for a few years, then developed dementia. She spends her evenings watching TV with me (This is her choice) then talks and asks questions non-stop. She talks in a tiny baby voice that can barely be heard (Yes, I got my hearing checked -- no problems) She rarely finishes a sentence, but becomes enraged that I don't respond the way she wants me to. For example, she'll say "I need you to help me. Will you ...." If I try to get her to finish her sentence, she's furious. If I guess what she wants, I'm wrong and she's furious. If I ask her to repeat herself, she's furious. I"m more than willing to help her and to listen to her, but I have no idea what she wants and can't satisfy her. Can anyone give me specific suggestions on what to say?
