For my mom, I like to take out photographs taken over the decades and ask her about them (e.g. "who's this?", "was this your favorite vacation spot"…). It seems to calm her down.

Nice tip, @grecarmar Great idea!

Thank you for sharing that tip! We can certainly all use every tip out there as we caregivers journey on!

Strength, courage, and peace!

I tried showing him pictures several months ago during a episode.it turned out to be very painful for him. He wasn't sure who anyone was until I showed him our daughter who passed away from lymphoma 5 years ago. He said it was Amy and burst into tears and started to sob that was his baby girl who died. It broke my heart. Thank you so much for the tip though.
