Hi my 86 year old Mum has just been diagnosed with dementia, I am the only child aged (62)and live 45 mins drive away, I am finding it hard to come to terms but have known in my own mind this might have been the problem over the last few months. Can any one advise how I can tackle the problem of Mum ringing me 20/30 times lind line and mobile a day and through the night. I really dont mind but up until a few months ago mums telephone bill was between £50/70 a quarter now its rising to almost £200 a quarter. I talk to her about it and the answer I get is "well I can afford it" I have a care plan being put into place as like I expect many other people she is forgetting to change her clothes, and when she does the dirty ones go back into a drawer. I have never had to go through anything like this before and I get upset and sometimes frustrated as I do not know how to handle situations. Any help would be welcome.
