My heart goes out to you as my mother also had dementia and it was very sad to see her slipping thru my fingers. She forgot who we were and then worried when she didn’t see us.
I can understand being angry. We get angry when something as precious as our loved ones are gone and the roller coaster ride you spoke of never seems to stop, right?
Would you like to have some free reading material on how to cope with grief? I have been providing the link to others and in a variety of languages, even sign languages for those who are hearing impaired. It’s no problem and I’d be more than happy to send them to a private email.
Today, I hope you will have one day of calm.

Yes, I remember once my uncle went to visit my mom and she didn’t even realize it was her brother. When he left to go home, she asked who that man was.
I was terribly frightened of my mom being in a nursing facility after one of her heart attacks. I wanted to make sure they was taking good care of her. I know the nursing facilities are under staffed and over worked. I was spending most of my days there until she finished her rehabilitation and came back to our house.
I think the part about asking for dead people is like they have some memories from when they was healthier. My mom always talked about her parents and growing up on a farm. I just reminded her that she didn’t live on a farm anymore.
It’s difficult to know how to handle some situations.

Awww- I’m sorry about that! It must make you feel really terrible that you can’t just take her home.
The same thing happened with my mom after her heart attack. She couldn’t just live by herself anymore. We had to empty her apartment and she came to live with me and my family. She kept wanting to go back to her apartment.
Like your mother, mine forgot as soon as I answered her.
I’m sorry your mother had a seizure. That must have been scary. My mom had mini strokes - It was very frightening to watch. The doctor said she would keep having them and I’m sure that made her memory worse.
Yes, in my mom’s nursing facility, there were ones we got to know better. There was a man who played the piano very well. He would play it in the evenings and we sat in the lobby and watched the birds.
Excuse me if I’ve forgotten, but do you live near your mom or do you have to travel far to see her? My mom was only a few miles away during the times she had to physical therapy and stay in the nursing facility.
