I COMPLETELY agree with Sherry...no harm in telling her little white lies. Why continue to cause her pain, and so much stress on yourselves? What purpose does it serve? My mom has Alz, she is 89 years old and lives in assisted living. I call her every night to say good night and every night she asks "will I see you tomorrow?" and every night I say "of course, I will be there"... I do go at least twice a week, sometimes more, but it makes her happy to think her daughter is coming the next day. She never, ever remembers. It just gives her a good feeling as she is falling asleep. What's the harm? None.
