Sometimes, you just have to laugh. It may be at the expense of your dementia sufferer (DS) and if so, then do be discreet, but it is okay to laugh. For example, as a co-caregiver I was asked by my male counterpart to do something about our loved one’s makeup. It seems he had arrived at her memory care facility to find her with blue eyebrows.
How do you react to a lady with blue eyebrows? This particular lady had always worn only a bit of makeup of which lipstick and eyebrow pencil were the key elements. Apparently, she had misplaced her brown eyebrow pencil and could only find a blue ballpoint pen. I would give a lot to have a video of his reaction. My reaction over the phone when he told me about it was to giggle. However, I agreed to take her shopping for a new eyebrow pencil the next time I visited her.
