Hi, I am new to all this so please bear with me. My Mum has just been told she has Alzheimers and although she heard what was said by the Doctor, she still thinks she will get over it as if it was flu or something. Should I let her carry on believing this or try to get her to accept that she will only get worse. I have to try to decide what will be best for her in the future when her illness progresses, and I really would like her to tell me, the best she can, what she would like to happen. I am kind of scared that I will decide for her and that she will be unhappy. Dont get me wrong I am NOT thinking of putting her in a home or trying to shift the responsibility I just won't to get it right. So please if you have been where I am now and you found the answer, tell me.
