This Week's Carenote - 07/03/12

What concerns me most is when my Alzheimer parent gets "homesick" every single day and then spends most of the rest of the evening crying. She wants to go home, but she can't tell me where that is. She lives with us and has for 11 years. I can't stand the constant crying, and I can't find what this means in Alzheimer's language and so I don't know how to stop it or redirect it. Once she gets there, there's no way to stop her.
