My sister with dementia moved in 15 mos ago and she thinks most things in my house belong to her and that I stole them from her in years past. I can deal with this. But she then squirrels things away so I can't find them--things that are inconsequential but needed like my glasses, cookbooks, spatula, cheese grater etc. I find it really hard to be nice when I'm in the middle of something and need--for example--a spatula. I get exasperated, knowing she has hidden it thinking it's hers, but has no recollection of where she has hidden it. Same with my glasses--I usually wear contacts and am EXTREMELY nearsighted. When I've taken out my contacts because an eye is scratched, there is NO WAY I can find my glasses in some hidey-hole in her room.
What's a good strategy for dealing with this??
