Mom has dementia and is in a memory care facility, she remembers me and my husband and kids and her sons and wife and kids. She thinks her husband, my dad is alive as well as her parents and her sisters. She still thinks she has her house and her life is as it was 25 years ago. And that she just played golf yesterday. She was in ALF for 6 months then moved to memory care and has been there for 9 months. It seems like everything I can talk to her about is off limits, they are either dead or she doesn't live there anymore. It's a struggle to find things to talk about. And I avoid anything that I may have to lie to her about. I told her once my dad had passed away and she cried for 2 hours. I will never do that again. Every visit is a challenge. We can only talk about the kids, weather, etc so much. Sometime she acts like she can't hear me and I have to repeat myself over and over again to until I find my self yelling at her. She is not hard of hearing, I think it is more that she is not concentrating on what I am saying and can't process it so she says 'I can't hear you'. I am kind of at my wits end. Every conversation is a struggle. I have tried talking about the past, but it always leads to me having to tell her a lie to keep from upsetting her. Any suggestions?
