My LaLa has Alzheimer’s

Rose

LaLa always asks me things over and over again

I live with my LaLa (grandmum) she has Alzheimer’s and Dementia. I find it a hard when my LaLa blames me for doing something I didn’t do. Grandma is always hitting the dog if it barks on its walks and sometimes he is scared of her. LaLa is always awake at night and doing things you do during the day like watering the plants, washing clothes and making lots of noise making it hard for me to feel safe. She calls me my mothers name, and always talks to me as if I was my mum. LaLa always asks me things over and over again. It’s hard to go to sleep at night because LaLa wonders round the house. At school no one knows how I feel and what I’m going through. I don’t like coming home anymore because I don’t know what to expect form her.
