Hi Penny,
It is no easy task to take care of someone with Alzheimer’s, patience and understanding are essential during this time.  Accept the fact that your mother no longer remembers, lives in the past and see things that aren’t there.  Correcting her and arguing with her will only cause added stress in her life, try and go along with things as much as possible. If you need more resources or information, check out the POP community blog, “Oh My God! We’re Parenting Our Parents” book or schedule a session with one of our Certified POP Family coaches.
