Welcome to HW
PLease do not think of your GMA as stupid as she is not
'For her what she sees is real
She may not have alzheimers but I am sure that there is some dementia going on
YES she is afraid
Think how you would feel if you were in her shoes......I can safely think you would be afraid too
Have EMPATHY not apathy and find ways to to be able to talk to your GMA so you can calm her down and try to keep her in a "Happy Place"
There is a "Quick Fact thread" on the forum I would suggesst you read and see if anything pertains to her
I Lost both my parents my dad just April 17th of this year and mom 2 yrs before to this Dang disease that really robs us of them
THis forum is for support and caring and empathy not for making remarks like that ......
I do hope you will find the real GMA for bits at a time and get memories made with her before she goes..........
EMAIL me if you feel I have been harsh with you please
