Dad who has dementia and other health problems has just spent his forth week in hospital. Move to a nursing home has been postponed due to a chest infection. My question is how to answer Dad when he asks about people that have passed away...today he asked why his Brother Tom had not been to visit him...my uncle died in 1993. Is it best to tell Dad the truth or not?..today I told him Uncle Tom had died several years ago and he just went really quiet for about 15mins.I am sure he will ask me about him again...should I tell the truth when he asks? Thanks for any advice.
