Mum, who has dementia, but lives alone with carers calling 4 times per day, is making 14+ phone calls in quick succession in the evening to my brother, who also lives on his own but is also bipolar. Dad died 5 months ago and was her main carer. He is so fed up with this, he is thinking of moving in with her for several days a week, but I worry it will harm him even more, and will cause more problems than it will solve. Does anyone have a strategy for reducing the phone calls. I suggested getting her to write down she has called in her diary whilst talking so eventually she'll see what she's doing and realise how many calls she's making. Does anyone have a strategy to reduce the calls?
