Is there someway to address her confusion with time/dates and who is coming and going? She loves having some type of schedule. I think anything we can do to help her feel like she has any sense of control or independence is crucial.
We also love a schedule. Our caregivers are given hour by hour descriptions (as detailed as possible) for the residents they care for. They also ASK each resident what/when they like to do things, and we can change if needed. We don’t like anything to feel like their schedule or routine cannot be changed. We are very lucky to have such wonderful employees (even the housekeeping and dining staff). We keep staff consistent to lessen confusion.
