App: Alzheimer's & Other Dementias Daily Companion

Your On-the-Go Guide for Dementia Care Advice

How do you deal with a mother who is always accusing you of stealing from her?

That’s a common question asked by many sons and daughters caring for a parent with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias. The accusation scenario could just as easily be replaced with: who won’t eat her food, who refuses to shower, who hides her underwear in my purse, who curses at me, who urinates in the bedroom floor vent, or who doesn’t recognize me.

While the situation at hand may differ from day to day and from person to person, the core question remains:

How do I deal?

    My brother died last August 2015. He was a severe diabetic and lived with my mother. Ever since then my mother has been seeing my dad, her mom and various other family members, who has been dead for many years. She has been cooking large meals for them and then realizes there is no one there but herself. Very depressing. Is this a form of Dementia, Alzheimers or what. I live 2-3 hours away and just do not know what to do. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I will be attending a startup event that focuses on software, app, and web development. I am interested in feed back to understand what type of an app, would help a patient during an episode where they are disoriented. I see apps for the caregiver and apps used to locate a patient, but nothing yet that is designed to tell a patient basic info that will help them, such as their name, phone number, address, spouse or loved one. I see that notes or an app would not be of much if one can't remember to use it. I am thinking and audible message help button. Thoughts please?

    My dad was diagnose with Dementia last year and it is the hardest thing to deal with for me and my mother because he doesn't want to talk to us he just looks at us and expect us to now what he wants and it breaks my heart seeing him go through this because his mother had it and she passed away and that is my biggest fear of losing my dad to this horrible illness I wish they had a cure for it because I miss my old dad I don't like the dad I have now because he doesn't talk to me or anything I just don't want my dad going into a nursing home and dying like my grandma
