My mother lives in a lovely senior apt complex, has plenty of activites, has an incredible woman that comes and checks on her 10 times a day (home health - in house) and has me and my granddaughter come to visit either every other or ever day. She has dementia, which is getting worse day by day. She really can't carry on a conversation, unless it is saying something ugly about someone. She is suddenly lonesome and makes sure everyone knows it. She tells her caregiver know constantly, making her feel guilty. Mom was never outgoing and most of her life sat in her chair, reading and watching tv. She wasn't demonstrative or one to cry. Now she cries all the time. NOthing helps. She was on effexor for anxiety, but that didn't do a thing. I know her well, and she is incredibly manipulative. So maybe part of this behavior is just how she is, but she can't put on the tears. Any suggestions to help? Any ideas why she may be doing this?
