She has even start to pack up her clothes and waiting for me to take her home
She is probably referring to either a home where she was younger or a home where she raised her children, if she has boxes of pictures or things she may have kept throughout the years pull some of the items out and set them around the home. Take her for a short drive if she is physically able to then bring her back home stating "we are home" when you pull in the drive.
My husband has asked me three times this afternoon if he is at home, when did we get back. We haven't been anywhere. I know my own Mum when she had dementia thought she was back in her childhood home and would always ask me 'how did you find me?' She was in a frailcare ward near our home. My husband's mind is full of strange imaginations of things that didn't happen, and were never likely to happen! Yet he is at present watching a David Attenborough series on TV and understanding it quite well. He also watches TV news. But his short-term memory and cognitive ability are very poor now.
My 90 year old Mum with ALTZ thinks her parents are still alive,she thinks she has to go back home.
She can get frantic and upset but I can't let her go walk about,she is now on Trazadone which calms her down but makes her sleepy.
How do you tel your Mum that she can't go and see her parents without making her upset,sometimes you just can't win.
Thank you for that, my husband feels lost and doesn't know where he is. The other day he asked me which planet is he on! Tomorrow we have an appointment and when we return I will tell him "we are home."
My mum has been doing this for months now, before she couldn't be left alone she took a bag everywhere, as soon as I got in I would automatically put it all back, only to do the same thing every day , it's not easy getting them to believe they are home
