none Re: grief in the dementia patient

My mother passed away 2 months ago from Alzheimers. My dad has dementia and they were in the same home. We have told him that my mom has passed but of course he will forget. HE USED TO sit and visit with her every day. the weird thing with my dad is he doesn't react to my mom being gone...he will got to visit her and the staff will tell him that she is in heaven,and he will say noone told him or that they are lying. he does not cry...he never asks me about my mom any more when I am visiting...I wish I could understand dementia more. My advice would be to just go along with what your dad says and if he asks about her just say she is still in hospital...why renew his grief aver and over
