Mom with dementia has been in assisted living for 3 weeks and talks non-stop to me about going home. Every visit and every phone call consists of pleas, demands, and rationalizations about going home. She tells me that the staff says she doesn't need to be there, the nurse practitioner says she doesn't need to be there, and that people have told her that they will come and get her whenever she wants them to. When she was at home, she always thought she was somewhere else. I would get phone calls all day and all night from her begging me to come get her and take her home (she was at home). I've tried changing the subject. I've tried discussing it with her. She hears nothing I say or she becomes very aggressive towards me. I don't know what to do. I know this is a common issue, so please share your experience with this issue.
