I know some things just aren't important but I find it so difficult not to interfere... Mum lives alone with her (very) small dog. I've been staying (go home tomorrow) and find it very stressful to ignore some of the odd dementia related stuff she does - like the fact that there are currently ELEVEN plates of water/dog food/grated cheese etc down for the dog (in 3 different rooms). Last night I sneaked away a full packet of cold meat that was down for him. Other than the fact it's not good for the dog (though mostly he doesn't eat it) it's not actually a problem and I shouldn't let it bother me. But it does! It really does. I need a good online shake from you sensible people!
