Just wondered if anyone had evening sitters. My mum lives alone, I visit twice a day and my sisters go once a week each plus have her to stay one weekend a month. She is getting very confused in the evenings when she is alone. She phones me up asking how many animals she has as she has been looking for them all ( only has one dog). Last night she phones at 10.30pm asking who was picking her up to take her home. I had to go round and put her to bed as I couldn't convince her she was at home over the phone. She remembered today that she felt this way but can't understand why. My sister thinks we should get someone to sit with her every evening from say 6.30-8.30. I am not convinced and feel it will confuse her more as it will not be the same person every night, she will wonder why they are there, once they have gone she will then start looking for animals or make her even more convinced she is in the wrong house. My other issue as always is that it will be me having to find these wonderful sitters, sort out paying them and deal problems when they don't turn up etc. Just wondered what others think.
