Sometimes I Could Just Scream...

The evening times are difficult for me. I've been taking care of mom (with dementia) since 2002. It takes two hours for her to brush her teeth and wash her face. She will walk around the house or look outside the window or try to organize the kitchen. She sees people or animals in the window which is why I have closed and seal the curtains with tape. She still sees the "people or animals" through the windows. At first, I would tell her that there are no "people or animals" in the windows but she would get mad at me. Now I will shoo the "people or animals" away and she's happy. Have you seen Bill Murray's movie Groundhog Day? That's been my life for 5 years.
