Should you tell your loved one they have Alzheimer's?
We were told my mother had Alzheimers a couple of years ago and she's now mid-stage. My brother and I agreed not to tell her at the time. She now has a caregiver (we call her a companion) four days a week for a few hours a day and we are upping it to five days a week. She is quite angry; knows she is forgetful but doesn't have a clue as to how much; and is now quite angry about the extra hours and says she doesn't need a babysitter. I'm looking for opinions to be frank about her Alzheimers, as a way of more explanation to her. Of course, she'll probably just say we're lying. Thoughts or ideas anyone?
