Lately when other family members visit my mom, she asks for her mom and where she is. Keeps saying she has to change a lightbulb for her.
On occasion my mom calls me, "mom". Do you think she is referring to me?
Everyone just plays along with it and says that "mom" is home.
The Dir. of Nursing told me that it's best just to destract about the death of a loved one, rather than telling them they've passed on. Mom is even talking about her long-time companion who passed about 4 years ago. It's weird she doesn't talk about my Dad though. But he's been gone about 30 years. Maybe she will get back to that point eventually.
Anyway, have a wonderful Independence Day..if you can!
