One senior lady here locks her door at night, yet, people come in and steal her money, her jewels, and her wine. She reports these thefts to the office, but they do NOT call the police. She is currently in an argument with next door neighbor lady whom she says stole $80 from her.
My tablemate has someone reach into her room nights and steal her laundry bag, with her dirty laundry. The bag gets returned but not the laundry. She says she is running out of underwear.
One of our card players hated rainy weather because "Those people come in from outside and get into my bed with their muddy shoes on." They also brought animals with them and left them in her room. There were "animals" on her walls.
It is easy to recognize the senior dementia in my fellow residents. Not so easy to recognize my own.
A care giver comes and checks on us every two hours. Sometimes I am asleep when he shines his flashlight on me, and other times, I keep my eyes closed and feign sleep. He always locks the door when he leaves. However, between his visits I hear someone walking around in the other room of my two room apartment.
Now, I know the door is locked, but I HEAR someone in the next room. It sounds so real I sit up in bed and try to peer around the corner into the room, but it is dark.
I know that senior lady has misplaced her money and jewelry and drunk her own wine, and I know that tablemate's laundry will return, and that the card player's animals require no feeding, but, tell me. who is the person who walks around in the other room of my apartment at night?
