What do you do when your mother (who has Alzheimers) wants to go home - and she's already home!?
I live with my mother who has Alzheimers(I'm the caregiver)At times she thinks my father is still alive(he's been gone 7 yrs) and my 2 younger brothers live here-which they may call ( for 5 minutes)once a week or stop by once a month for a qiuck visit.
My mother every so often,is now saying she doesn't live here, and wants to go home. I tell her, she is home, but keeps insisting that she lives somewhere else and is not going to stay here. I'll call my brothers and tell them whats going on and they tell me- try and distract her into thinking something else-which for some reason she keeps bringing up about going home. Does anybody have that problem- which they found out how to handle it?
Yesterday, she said about going home-so I took her out driving for about an hour-and she said it's getting late we can find the place tommorrow.
This is driving me crazy-I've got 3 brothers and 1 sister and when I tell them I need help-they say your living there-your the caregiver-what a caring family I've got. I don't know what to do?
