She has late stage dementia (about stage 6+). We needed to move my mom to my home 2 years ago. She stayed for 1.5 years then we moved her to an Alzheimers Unit in a local nursing home. She no longer is able to remember where she is, or any other details of her present condition. I visit her several times a week and she is still able to remember family members and some friends, if not by name, by recognition. She is pretty frail, walks with a walker very short distances. She sometimes needs to use a wheelchair.
I'm planning a family gathering with children ranging in age from 3 mos. to 14 years old. Is it better for small groups to visit her at the NH or for her to visit the full group (11 people in all) at my home.
Have any of you had experience with this? Mom still enjoys being around people, though her communication is very limited.
