How do I help my mother's friends and family understand that she has dementia? They bring things to my attention and when I say that my mother has dementia and that it is a progressive disease is not enough. They seem to want me to talk to my mother and this will fix or correct her behavior.
Is it because they have not experiences Dementia first hand? Is it because they do not understand the nature of being a 24/7 caregiver for a parent with Dementia?
