My mom with dementia and hearing loss is in AL -I visited (I live 5 hrs away) and we couldn't find her hearing aids. When I asked my brother who lives there where they were he said that she lost them- I asked if she was getting a new one and he went off on me-saying I was never f'ing there -she doesn't like them-they don't work etc I called her hearing aid centre and they said she hasn't been to an appt in over 3 years. Her private nurse told me that my brother’s let her go a few months ago-they told me she found another job and resigned-I believe the nurse. These are such touchy subjects to bring up with them. In a normal family I would just say let's get mom back in to the hearing aid place next time I visit. I am reluctant because he gets so hostile-any advice on how to approach the primary caregiver for better results?
