I stayed with my mom at her house this weekend while my stepfather was out of town and she was a true workout. She does try to be independent, but is very stubborn in many ways whcih makes dealing with her sometimes difficult. Once sundown begins she swears that she is not in the right house and asks why is her mail in someone else's home. When I ask her how did we get in she replies that someone gave her the key to get in. This goes on and on for a few hours and finally I just kept telling her to go upstairs and lie down and put her pj's on which are in her room.During this time she was constantly trying to leave the house. I had to watch her like a hawk.This alzheimer's disease is really awful. And the sad part about it is that it only gets worse.
