Got 2 week respite agreed to give dad a break. How do we tell mum? She's got very advanced Alz and vascular dementia. Very delusional,hallucinations and no short term memory BUT does remember things sometimes. My gut instinct is to tell the truth but others say just take her and leave? I am happy to still visit her in respite cause I hope to calm her but others say best to leave her alone. The care home say it's up to me if I think visiting would be helpful to mum. Don't know what to do for best.
