Hi all My mum has dementia and lives with me. Over the last seven days she has been unbearably difficult to deal with. She fixates on things and won’t be distracted. Her latest fix is an old broken watch that can’t be repaired. She insists on going to Tesco to get it fixed. Tesco is 500 yards form my home and she keeps getting out of the house and going to Tesco to ask if someone can fix the watch! She either sneaks out or if I catch her and try to stop her she gets aggressive and I simply can’t fight with her several times a day. Like all dementia patients she doesn’t think there’s anything wrong with her and it’s everyone else who has a problem. She corners me in a room and won’t let me leave and goes on and on repeating the same thing over and over and all I want to do is scream! She’s started sneaking out of the house at night and wandering off, she’s not dressing appropriately for the weather and I am at the end of my tether, I feel like I’m going to have a breakdown! I called the mental health team to ask for advice and the first thing they said was how much money does your mum have? I was hoping for some guidance on what to do or for her medication to be reviewed so I was taken back when the first thing they asked was how much money does your mum have will she be self funded? I thought they would be able to section her sort her medication and then she could return home, I am surprised they jumped straight to funding! Any advice would be appreciated.
