hi Lynd, thanks for taking the time to answer.
Yes my reason for joining is to get some advice and I am sure i will get some support as well regarding what i fill its a complicated issue.
I look after a lady with dementia/Alzheimer's and i find it extremely dificul to keep her entertained for 7 hours a day everyday.
She is not interested in doing puzzles or any activity. Her hands are quite shacky so she can not nit or do much with her hands, she is not able to watch tv either and she is quite deaf so having a conversation with her is quite difficult as she ends up getting tired of being able to hear and she gives up.
She gets very anxious/angry/violent and upset as soon as she realizes her partner is not by her side. He is quite ok for his age and likes to do his own thing, he is with her all day (she does not remember) but as soon as he leaves her side she gets really anxious and quite violent.
The thing to do would be to keep her entertained so she does not notice his absence so much (2 hours a day that he goes and does his own thing) but she refuses, all she wants to do is be with her partner 24/7
Any suggestions on how to keep her entertained for 7 hours a day ? as I feel i am failing her for not being able to keep her busy.
