I gave up work 2 years ago to care for my mom with dementia and other health problems my sister thinks she should be in a home I as an Environmental Health Officer am not that keen on the level of care in homes and hope never to use them. Mom is now prescribed anti depressants to cope with anxiety and other medication for a thyroid disorder both of which are improving but are new drugs to her. the Dr declined to treat (at the moment) the hallucinations that mom suffers with that centre on a man she grew up with who leaves for the front at the start of ww2. He (Alan) also gets married just before leaving to a woman mom knew. Mom is constantly on about this situation and I can't any longer distract her. Mom will shout from windows both day and in the night, make gestures at passing traffic, mistake men in the street for this man and get me up in the middle of the night because of the noise she is experiencing (we actually leave in a very quiet cul-de-sac where there is no one passing at night). Any advice I bought a dog which she likes as she had dogs as a child but walking him is a slow process, I don't seem able to physically tire her out and yet she can't concentrate on books tv or facebook. any advice.
