Do you not understand Dementia its not attention,every person that hits out that has dementia does it for reason,the way staff approach her,doesn't understand what is being asked of her?She may have grief that hasn't been acknowledged now she's locked their with it.Not knowing why she feels horrible,scared calling for the one person made her feel good a very familiar name.Everytime she calls out to her hubby its the 1st time,to her she isnt aware that she has called his name 100+ times before.Patience is the only key to caring for ppl with dementia.Having worked 30+ years in aged care I can honestly tell you that.
