Hello all, this is my first post. Mum has had both Alzheimer's and Vascular dementia for a number of years. Just recently she has started to ask where my dad is, and she thinks he has gone off with another woman, but in reality he died 11 years ago. This has lasted several months now. We have been skirting round her questions, but I really don't know the best way to handle it. Should I tell her each time that dad died? Or go along with her current thinking, which is obviously causing her a lot of distress too. Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide.
