My sister is in late stage Parkinson's and over the past few months the dementia has started.I had been calling and talking to them once a week, but it seemed to only confuse her more. Is it better that I just don't call?
Both her daughters and I live out of town and her husband is her caregiver, though in recent months he has realized he can no longer do it alone and is bringing in more help. I had been calling and talking to them once a week until two weeks ago, but it seemed to only confuse her more. I can't talk to her until I get home from work, and by then her sundowning has started. I hate this, but I don't want to make her confusion worse, so it is better that I just don't call, isn't it?
By the way, 22 years ago she and I were caregivers for our mother who had Alzheimer's.
