Hi, I havent been on here for quite a while but I am always reading the posts from you all with great interest. My Mum who is 89 lives with us and has had dementia for 5 yrs, the short term memory is getting very bad.My biggest problem is that although she has smoked for over 50 yrs she is becoming obsessed with it. I have tried just giving her a couple at a time but them she keeps hounding me for more so i give her another pkt and as you have guessed she just sits and smokes one after the other.I know i have to go out and get them with her money but I worry that i get so angry and losing my patience. Has anyone come across a similar situation? As a safety thing I do take them away from her at night time !!
