I'm interested in finding out how others have coped in situations when family make daft/ridiculous 'comments'..... regarding general process the Alz. They know that their brother repeats himself (a lot !), but they get really MAD at him for doing so. They SHOUT at him to STOP etc... etc... I can stay calm, and say ... 'you've said that already'...... The more he does it, the LOUDER they have begun to shout. If anyone shouts, he get quite agitated, and repeats himself.... +++ My husband forgets that he has already done a lot of 'things', including EATING This weekend we were on a rare family visit, and my S-I-L SHOUTED to my husband "YOU BETTER HAD NOT FORGET THAT I'VE COOKED YOU A MEAL, OR I WILL BE REALLY P'D OFF WITH YOU !!" No matter how much I try and 'explain things' to them, they do not listen at all. It's as though they have all 'collectively' decided that there is nothing wrong. He has been told to.. "Pull himself together"... "Stop messing about" etc etc... What shoud I be doing to make family understand that neither I or my husband has any real 'control' over what is happening? I'd appreciate any of your thoughts. Regards, DaisyG.
