I dread visiting my aunt -- any ideas?
I dread visiting my aunt in the ALF. It is a real struggle to get her to talk about anything other than her favorite subject, which is "Where am I?". There are about 20 more drill-down follow-up questions which are also part of the package, such as "what town, what road, how long, why, what? I'm blind? I am? How long have I been blind? For over a year? I have? Are you sure?" The only thing she remembers is that she doesn't remember anything. So I patiently take her through the whole nine yards, and she'll conclude it by saying, "Well! Now I've got all that straight!". She'll take a long breath, exhale, and then she'll say, "I can't remember where I am! Where am I?" and the never-ending tape loop starts again. I try to steer the conversation elsewhere, and she'll say, "No, I want you to tell me where I am!". I really feel like I've landed in Bedlam. Any ideas to help me ease the cringe in my stomach?
