How do you learn to accept or cope with the changes in a parent related to dementia. The observation they can be engaging in an appointment but not in regular life....my dad was able to go to 3 appointments in 2 days last week and visit the grandchildren and granddog after an appointment 1 week ago. this week has not done anything except in home physical therapy. he has not had any appointments. mom tried to encourage him to go for a ride today since we had a gorgeous day here. he's legally blind so he always says he can't see or his head hurts or .... pick something. so frustrating as his daughter and as he use to be social  frustrating for me too because it's upsetting to my mom. I don't know how to react  1 hand I want to MAKE him do something, on the other hand I know I can't. I guess it's time to go back to the book...36 hour day...
