Hi everyone, this is my first post as my Mother has recently been diagnosed with dementia and I was hoping for some advice. At the moment she lives alone and is still very capable of looking after herself, which I realise is a good thing. She cooks for herself and cleans the house quite well, she is also able to do her own shopping and fills in her time by going into town on the local bus. The problem we have is her memory, in that she thinks her daughter (me) should be coming in from school and is upset and unable to comprehend that I left school over 40 years ago and have no wish to return! I have left notes for her to remind her of this, which is a new thing I am trying. She also finds it difficult to recognise me as her daughter, as in her mind I am still in my teens. Are there any other methods anyone could suggest to help. I would be grateful for any advice. Thank you.
