Dealing with the death of a loved one for a patient with dementia

231 Views
Message 1 of 1

My dad recently passed away and my mom, who has dementia, does not seem to be able to comprehend that he is not coming back. She will sometimes ask if he died, but at other times, she asks if he is in the hospital. She wonders if he will understand why she isn’t visiting him. Does anyone have a similar experience? How have you dealt with this?
