Folks are supportive and I hate to "hide" her but she is a 5 yr old. Behaviors include play-by-play when others are speaking. inappropriate commentary on peoples' appearance, and a continuous repeated mantra. She enjoys the events of music, ordeouvres and general festivities, but no longer recognizes long-standing friends. She finds events pleasant unless it is too noisy and folks often thank me for bringing her. Hope not to hire a 'babysitter"
You may want consider having a a helper to come with you occasionally so you get a chance to mingle and enjoy the events too, maybe you could even stay later while the helper takes her home.
My mother no longer remembered her brother and when we visited him, she flirted... he was the most gracious accommodating gentleman to her.
