What has worked for others when their loved one with dementia or alzheimer's when they are repetitive and agitated and compulsive with doing the same things everyday even when you are redirecting their behavior. Mom is having nosebleeds once or twice a week which I have checked out with her physician and is not dangerous, but she is constantly blowing her nose or cleaning it out with tissues and taking her oxygen nares out of her nose. I warn her that the more she blows it or rubbing it can result in her nosebleeds, she forgets the next minute. Sometimes I have just got to go to another room and count to 10 before I can try to redirect her again. Some days are better than others and she is not difficult to take care of, most days she is a sweetheart. I just wish I could be better at redirecting her attention better. Thanks for letting me vent. jrmom
