I have 3 siblings- a sister in Australia, a brother in Mexico and another brother about a hour away from me.
Mum has vascular dementia. I am with her every day, average 7 hours a day.
Lately mum has been upset because of the lack of contact from my siblings. She cries (she never used to show emotion at all, but now she clings to me, upset) and asks me what has she done wrong, why don't they write....
mother 90 years young, trying to make her as comfortable and safe in her own home as possible. current problem is her not knowing what day it is and going to bed at odd times during the day disruping her daily patterns. looking for a clock etc that will reminder of which day it is and what time of day, voice prompted would be ideal.

My nan was diagnosed with dementia in 2005 and I am finding it really hard to deal with.
