My mum was diagnosed with dementia six years ago and although she repeats herself and can't recall much it has generally been ok. She lives at home with me and my sister. In April my dad passed away. Mum can't remember any of it, his diagnosis with cancer, a three week stay in hospital, a ten day stay at home and his final three days in a Marie Curie hospice. Sometimes when she asks and we tell her what happened she gets understandably upset. Other times she doesn't believe us, accuses me and my sister of not letting her see him or say goodbye to him, doesn't believe she has anything wrong with her and that we are just horrible daughters. She sobs uncontrollably and gets very angry. What should we do in these situations? We always tell her the truth but she doesn't always believe us. She thinks he is still in hospital sometimes...should we agree with her? But then what if she wants to go to see him? This has been ongoing almost every day since dad died and it is soul destroying seeing her so upset but not knowing what to do to help her.
