How do you talk to people who are in denial of their dementia?
My mom is seeming to be in denial of the fact that she can no longer remember all the important details of her life. Do I just go with it? Do I try to convince her and bring her in to the present moment? It's kind of tiring having conversations again and again, as many of us know. And then there are times she seems to be somewhat aware of what's going on and that things are slipping through her fingers and yet she wants to know about everything but has a hard time accepting it all when I tell her. Confusing.
