Yes, another Christmas over. My first without mum and this Christmas really brought home to me OHs deterioration. I was sad and rather aghast to discover how much he depended on his routines and little rituals to get him through the day. Without them he is lost. Even making coffee for him while he got his cereal for breakfast was enough to throw him so that he didnt know what to do. No, you are not wrong. Many people with dementia (PWDs) are unable to understand that they have dementia and its best and kindest not to keep telling them.
