My beloved mum has had mixed dementia for five years now and is in a home. She has reached the stage where she no longer knows who I am and has the dreaded haunted look in her eyes. We were so very close and during the last visit I cried my eyes out when she shut her eyes for a while. The home has a Facebook page and shows pics and videos almost daily and she looks so sad and confused in the photos compared to the other residents who aren't yet at that stage of the illness. The pain I feel is unbearable. Anyone else been in this situation ? Should I carry on visiting?
