Hi! That’s an interesting situation. I would go out and get a few duplicate, cheap rings for her. Keep them all except one, and give that one to her. Say, “Mom! Look, I found your ring!” and just let her have it. I would recommend locking your bedroom door, if you can. Many people with dementia have a “one track mind,” and if she’s focused on that ring, it will only stop when she A.) gets a ring replacement or B.) forgets about it–but that could take a while!
Rachael’s program is excellent! We are now better prepared to give our residents the care and understanding they need and to support our resident families with confidence. She also helped us with our engagement activities and daily activity calendars. We are now Dementia By Day Certified!
