If you have not told your loved one that they have Alzheimer’s, and the current situation is working, keep going on the same path.

Your loved one may or may not be able to articulate their goodbyes to friends even if they knew the full truth. What’s important is to encourage going out, being with friends and enjoying time together.

Take this time to discuss meaningful topics or review your times together. Sometimes a parent passes away without any notice or time to say goodbye. Enjoy having time together and value every day.
