      My Mother has Alzheimer’s and the best thing to do in my experience is just be patient. The best thing you can do when she forgets you is to just be a kind stranger as my Mother can often just be scared of me as sometimes I’m a stranger to her.

      Recently I have found that I’ve been trying out some ReMeLife activities with her and for the most part she wasn’t interested but we did the ‘British TV Shows of 50s and 60s’ and she lit up like a christmas tree and seemed genuinely interested.

      I’d recommend trying out some activities with your loved one and see if they respond to any. It’s such a heartwarming feeling.
