My Mom’s parents have been deceased for over 20 years. Up until about a year ago, my Mom would ask if her parents were dead, apparently she though so, but wanted confirmation. We would tell her yes, she would be upset for a bit but would be OK after. Of course this would repeat periodically but it was not terribly traumatic. Somehow, perhaps the combination of the Covid isolation (she lives in her home with my dad and me) and the deterioration of her mind she resurrected them in her mind. So now she wants to go visit them. Now that she believes they are alive, we didn’t want to shock her and cause her to relive the anguish of hearing of their death. We told her no travel during the pandemic restrictions. But now she thinks she can go. How do we tell her that her family is no longer alive? She says she misses them so much? Her sister also passed away about a year ago and she doesn’t know about that either. I don’t know what to do. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
