Others may have differant views but personally I would go along with her, if her memory is poor she wont remember you telling her anything differant, so let her think and  feel what makes her comfortable, go along with it and comfort her. Thats what she needs, caring and comfort ,Good Luck ....its good she is at home .thats the best thing for her ....

my grandpa will say things like that. We found it easier to go along with it because if we don't he will argue and say we are calling him a liar.

At this point it is what is easier for you.

look up Alzehiemers on google you will find many wonderful sights with each stage what to expect and how long they last. From there you should be able to determine which one she is in and how long it will last.

If you go back to the forums page you will see we also have an expert/Doctor Alzheimers forum, there is a great Doc on there will be able to give you more information, let us know how she is doing, my mom had a form of dementia from being a chronic diabetic ,she l;ived with my brother for a while I know that if your Mom  can stay with family it is the best thing you will ever do, you will beforever glad you did look after her yourself.

When my mom asks where her mom is, my dad tells her "Lois, my mom and your mom both passed away 4 years ago. she gets still and shows some sadness, but she excepts his answer. a few moments later she doesn't even remember the exchange anyway.

just go along with what shes saying because sometimes it gets them more upset to correct them I work at a care facility and care for some residents with Alzheimers.They can be a handful but it is also rewarding.joyce559
