How to compassionately answer questions about deceased loved ones.
My husband has declined rapidly in last few weeks. He constantly wants to go “home” and is frustrated when I insist that we are home. He wants to know where his parents are and when they will be here. Thinks his mom is expecting him at home and has even asked me if I know where his wife is. When I say “I’m right here”, he often just smiles as if he was playing a trick on me. How do you answer all those questions wisely and compassionately? I tell him our parents are in Heaven, but it makes him sad and sometimes he insists he just saw them. This is a new level for us and I don’t know what to say. Thanks for any new insight.
