Gma (94) has cognitively been great until recently. She is getting more and more confused wiht time of day. Last night at 10pm she asked when the nurse was coming...we had hours early said the nurse was coming tomorrow. She hadn't gone to sleep in between that we know of, she was working on a puzzle. This has now happened a couple times, and twice she has taken her medicine improperly as a result. She also left the water running in the kitchen yesterday. For how long, we aren't sure. Obviously, pills go to our hands not hers. She isn't cooking, just microwaving what we cook. But is this the starts of dementia? or is she just depressed and dispondant. She tells me daily that she wants to die. I don't know what to do for her other than be there.
