Re: Telling others
That was my thinking too, Nina....everyone will know when they see & interact with her. Actually, when I thought about it, I realized that we've told mom's side of the family...it's dad's side we've not shared the info with. Interesting.
I agree with you...I feel it lets them know what's going on so that they know how to interact with her.
We've already had an incident that required help from a neighbor. Last week, we had blizzard conditions here & called the neighbor to go check on her. Mom had fallen & wasn't able to get up. Unfortunately, she really didn't recognize the neighbor & wouldn't let her help...wouldn't even let her give her her robe or a blanket (mom was in her nightgown).
Given this, I think it's definitely time that we bring her condition more out into the open. THANKS!!
