Dementia can do one today!! (well, everyday!) Feeling upset because wasn't able to speak with Mum tonight as she kept interchanging the cordless phone with the television remote control. I gave up after 15 minutes of shouting down the phone in the hope she would hear me and swap back to walking on the cordless phone. (The carer was there, but obviously was not within earshot to assist Mum) It's a minor thing, in some ways, but at the same time, feels more significant as is indicative of something else she's losing... And where I am only able to get down there once a week to visit, it feels important to have those telephone conversations in between visits.
