When Your Loved One Doesn't Remember Where They Are

As your loved one enters this stage of Alzheimer’s, it is difficult to adapt to answering questions like, “Where am I?” Explain patiently to them where they are, and make sure they know they are safe and in a place of love. At home, consider keeping some trinkets or physical objects that you know they recognize, that you can point to and reference to help them feel grounded.
