  • When someone is at a stage where they are no longer recognizing people, even if they recognize some people but not others, it can be helpful for everyone to say their name and who they are.

  • So, for example, you can assume they may not remember you and simply walk in and say, “Hi, Mom, I’m Carl, your oldest son,” and then keep chatting. If your loved one gets agitated or upset by this approach, then you can work it into the conversation in a more causal manner.
