none Re: Mom demented- what now?

my mother in law is 96 years old and lives in assisted living. she has been well mentally until recently and has had an ongoing uti. she has been on medication which has increased her confusion and recently is convinced she lives somewhere other than her apartment in this facility. (she has been there five years.) she says she is ready to go home. my husband, an only child, feels hurt and saddened by her remarks. he gets upset when he talks to her and isn't sure how to handle the situation properly. she is very persistent and "changing the subject" doesn't work. what should we do to help her understand she lives there?
