Dad is less and less able to understand verbal communication. But I have found that he still does well with body language and miming. I just have to keep reminding myself that it helps. He also reads faces extremely well. I hope you are able to find a similar key with your mom, it is so sad when communication goes down the tubes.
Might your mom enjoy some of the music from her day??? I play some of Dad's old stuff and and he really likes it. Mom even plays polka music to get him to exercise. They dance around the dining room table and have a lot of fun.
Hugs for you sis!!
