Hi all my mum who is 88 shortly has mixed type dementia and after living with me for 7 years we found a lovely home for her a couple of years ago. Her recent memory has gone. Every time I visit she just want to be at home (her childhood home from the 1930's) with her mum and dad (who both died in the 1950's) She can't understand why they don't come and visit (mind you she doesn't remember that anybody has ever visited her) and she gets very distressed that they haven't and that she has not heard anything from them and feels abandoned. We send lots of pretty cards with animals and pictures on the front that she looks at every day and she puts the all round her room. my question is really I am half considering writing a pretty notelet from them saying that they will be in to visit her soon - with the hope that it may calm her down, especially if I leave it by her bed where she can read it frequently. Is this a good idea???? Any suggestions???
