my mom has alzheimer's, dementia and she doesn't recognize her home anymore... she keeps asking me to take her home and no matter what I do or say to her, she keeps saying she's not at home... I heard it's best to simply not contradict her but in this case what can I tell her - where is her home and why she is not there?!... any advise would be much appreciated ! thanks !!!!
old people may remember their houses in which they lived their infancy.
Reassure that she changed house since long time and when she reask you, just smile to her.
Treat her with aricept 5 and ebixa 5-20
