Hi am desperate to try n help my friends mum who has recently been diagnosed with dementia. Her husband passed away at Christmas and he used to care for her my friend moved her in with her but she kept wondering around the village n became violent towards her daughter with her grief and confusion my friend has a six month old baby and it was decided her mum had to move back home or a care home . She couldn't cope home alone so has been in a care for for respite care for four weeks but is so distressed and scared. How can I help it's very upsetting? Would it help to have her own belongings with her make her room more like her own? Should I talk bout the past to try n settle her? Just feel helpless. This lady was always there for me and I want to help her.
