How do we tell our mum her diagnosis is vascular dementia, most likely in the middle stages, when she says it's us that's crazy!!! And does not remember what she does at night

hello @maggie13

Do you need to tell her? There was a thread about this yesterday as someone was asking about telling their wife they had Alzheimer’s. I think the general consensus is not to say and use whatever helps the person if needed - for example my mum has always been happy with saying she forgets things so we’ve stuck to that.
