Posted July 15, 2013

 

  • If you believe that it will upset your loved one to discuss things from their past that they can no longer remember, then don’t discuss them. Instead, ask them to tell you stories about their childhood or other memories that they can remember.

  • Talking about things that your loved one can remember might help bring more memories to the surface.

  • Depending on your loved one’s level of memory loss, talking about things they can’t remember may make them sad and depressed.
