Healing Begins at Home

My Mother keeps asking me the same question over and over, it’s driving me crazy. What can I do?

Sounds like your Mother has a memory problem. The best thing to do is change the subject. Do something to distract her. Ask her to take a walk with you or assist in making a glass of tea or prepare a meal. If you are on a walk talk to her about the sounds of the birds or the different flowers growing in the yards. Talk to her about the ingredients in the dish you are preparing. You can have her peel the potatoes and talk about where the potatoes came from. that could trigger her long term memory when she was growing up. Mind stimulation is good for short term memory loss.
