I'm very new to this site and don't know how to use it properly yet, so please bear with me.
I am caring for my 86 year old mother who has vascular dementia. I am finding it very hard to cope with her as she constantly states that her parents are still alive (they died in 1961 and 1962) and her brother is still alive and was here the other day (he died in 1989). Can someone please advise me on how to answer her. I find I am getting very annoyed with her as when I try to tell her the truth, she won't accept it and says that I don't know what I'm talking about. By the way, my mother has only been with me for 7 weeks so I know it's early days, but I really do need some advice.
