Help With Bogus Phone Calls

Help With Bogus Phone Calls

My husband is addicted to his cell phone. He answers calls from foreigners claiming to be from the FBI, CIA, Drug enforcement, etc. He gets us into a lot of trouble. He even changed his Medicare and now we can't get in to see a doc. What can I do? He gives them ss#'s, bank #'s, ikes! He is still in middle stages and says he's going to leave when I get angry or try to explain. He doesn't remember all the trouble he's caused before. I'm beside myself and worry about leaving him alone. Thank you… read more

I'm researching his phone every chance I get. Most of the blocking apps are made for child security and don't address my needs. I need to block calls from anyone that is not in his contact list. AT&T… read more

Does Anyone Have A Problem Finding Things Your AD Person Will Eat?

Does Anyone Have A Problem Finding Things Your AD Person Will Eat?

My husband won't eat many things. He will eat a hamburger from his favorite hamburger place. He will go to Golden Corral and eat 5 things so I try to take him there 3 times a week. At home he doesn't like anything I fix him, even foods he has always liked. He will eat 1 egg with 1 eggo. Sometimes he will eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I have protein drinks for him that he will drink sometimes. Other than that he says he doesn't like anything else I give him. He's not losing weight, just… read more

My Mom Is 86 And Has Dementia Alzheimers.

My Mom Is 86 And Has Dementia Alzheimers.

Hi. My mom is 86. My Dad was 91 and just recently passed before Christmas. It seems she is getting worse ever since this has occurred. We explained that Daddy passed and he is in heaven and she cried, but ever since then she will say "where is your father" or when we put her to bed she asks if we have a pillow for him. At night we dont like to keep telling her that he is no longer with us, but if she brings it up during the day we remind her that he is in heaven.

Should we keep doing this… read more

My Mother Gets Extremely Mad At Us When She Thinks That We Are Keeping "her" Dog From Her. She Has Not Had A Pet In Years.

My Mother Gets Extremely Mad At Us When She Thinks That We Are Keeping "her" Dog From Her. She Has Not Had A Pet In Years.

She tries to take my sister's dog and yells, cries, slams things, etc. sometimes when she can't take the dog home. It is happening more and more. We have tried the distraction technique but it doesn't always work (especially if she is angry). We have given her a stuffed dog but she rarely carries it. My dad has finally started the process to get in-home help, but he is exhausted. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
