Your mom may not have dementia, but it could help if your son would read this article: http://www.healthcentral.com/alzheimers/c/62/155361/grandchildren

He may realize that as people age they may change in some ways, but they are still the loving grandparent. It's normal for kids to be impatient, and I understand that you want to save him from regrets, but I do think you'll need to be realistic as to how much he can understand. It's good of you to try however. I hope the article helps.
