Dear Carol: My dad has advanced dementia and can’t tell me what he needs so it’s hard to know how to help him. He can get extremely agitated and distressed. When that happens, I try one thing or another and eventually he’ll calm down but how do I know whether I’m doing the right thing or if he’s just tired of trying to make me understand? I’ll admit that I can get exhausted so some of this might be my fault, but I want so much to make him comfortable. What should I look for when I try to help him? – LD
