Within a few weeks my mother-in-law will be transitioning to a nursing home. She has moderate dementia. She does not think anything is wrong with her. She is fully ambulatory, her main issues are cognitive and finding words.She does take medication for high blood pressure and diabetes, but doesn't usually recognize that she has these conditions or needs the medications. I am wondering if anyone has some advice on gentle answers to the hard questions I expect my father-in-law, husband,and his siblings may get from mom. Any ideas for what to say about where they are going (the first time) and why? What to say when leaving her there for the first time? The family plans to be with her alot in the beginning to help her adjust and anticipate lots of questions from mom like, "Why are we here? When can we go home?" etc. Any thoughts on how to make what I'm sure will be very difficult a little easier are sincerely apprecited.
