I've just got my Mum settled. She had gone to bed early, not feeling well, and then I heard she was out of bed. She was at the top of the stairs, crying. She doesn't know where her Mum is, doesn't know what to do, where's her Mum gone, she won't know where to find her, etc.etc. This has happened several times before, and I really do find this the hardest thing to cope with. My Mum is just a little girl again, wanting her "Mammy". I go along with her, saying her Mum will be back soon, she wouldn't go and leave her, etc. I don't know if my Mum even hears what I'm saying. She doesn't seem to respond to me cradling her, but I feel I have to try and comfort and reassure her. I find it truly heartbreaking listening to her. I'm assuming this is probably a commom problem and would welcome the benefit of others' experiences and advice.
