My sister passed away at 65 from frontal temporal dementia and I cared for her and my mom at the same time. My mom keeps asking for her sister Debbie. I am her daughter and I am Debbie. She does not have a sister named Debbie. Her sister Jean lives in Texas and I have my mom speak to her once a week. She keeps telling me she wants to be with her sister Debbie. I have been in my moms life and very close to her for the last 61 years. This is so frustrating to me that she can't see me her caregiver as her daughter Debbie. Her Dementia has progressed rapidly in the last 3 weeks. Now I feel I can't leave her in the room by herself. Yesterday came home from work and we were laying down taking a nap. She got up while I was asleep and started going in all the cabinets and wrapping all the items in paper towels and placing them in a garbage bag. When I asked her why she said a man told her to do it. There was no one else in the house at the time. It seemed like she was trying to do this without my knowledge. I went to the store and purchased child proof locks to put on the cabinets but I fear that this now the time for me to check into placing her into an assisted living home. Have checked with most of the assisted living homes in my area and they are all full with long waiting lists. I am seriously thinking of opening my own assisted living home but don't know where to start.
