Yes I'm possibly about to be mean and I can only apologise in advance but I want to get this off my chest to all of you so I don't say it to anyone else. Why does my dad keep putting mum on the phone to talk to me when she has only uttered the grand total of 6 words to me in the last 12 months - maybe even longer? I don't even know if she's still got hold of the phone because if I try and talk to her face to face, once I'm a couple of words into my sentence she'll just walk off. If I thought she understood a single word I said I could see the point of it but she doesn't. Arghhhhh!!!! Okay moment over. On the downside mum's attention span seems to be at an all time low. Dad tried taking her to various places while they were away but didn't manage to stay more than 30 minutes at any of them. If she's not out she's prowling and tends to become aggressive - what on earth can we do to keep her entertained and who the heck has the energy to change tasks every 30 minutes? I think this is the problem with the carers (who dad cancelled for this week). They aren't really doing anything with her and this is why she is becoming so aggressive with them. I'm at a loss.
