Hi I'm very new to this page, I have been helping look after my mom since my dad died in 2011 and to be quite honest it isn't getting any easier or better. Mom was diagnosed a few months ago with altzimers and dementia. The doc thinks she's had it about 4 yrs. I have a two children a husband and dog! Plus two older sisters. Till recently I did most things for mom but now my eldest sister has started helping more. But why I'm feeling so sad and want to cry more often than not is the fact in the last two weeks mom has fallen three times. Each of us have took it in turns picking her up. She phoned me saterday at 9pm , she was crying on phone asking me to go round and pick her up. She's 92. She was on floor, my hubby helped her up, she was so confused and crying which she isn't usually. When we got her on her feet and helped her in the lounge she kept sayin ohohohohohohoh it went on and on. Then she stopped and wanted to know why it was happening to her. I explained about the dementia, I told her about what was happening . She said she wanted to go in a home, then said she didn't want putting away, she then started on the ohohohohohohoh again. Then wanted all the lights off . I was very upset as even though she's fallen before and we have had to clean her up from poo and weeing herself this seemed way more worse. She wouldn't have doc . And said she wanted to go to bed, then halfway to bed she wanted to know where she was going, then she wanted to check it to was off, lights off heating off. I took her in toilet, and she kept saying helpmehelpmehelpme, this went on and on, she didn't need help, she was then talking to my dad, saying why did you go, repeating that over and over. I visited her Sunday, she was so quiet, and today she was so confused about everything. It's just horrid, she keeps saying enjoy your life, you get too old too soon. I really don't think she realises what effect she's having on us . Dos anyone else know why they repeat them selves over Nd over, it's very frightening.
