Dear Carol: My mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s a year ago. Her memory was a problem early on but now she’s also started to make things up. She thinks events from the past are real and she doesn’t realize she’s forgetting the present. She’s often confused about her surroundings, too. I’ve been told that you’re supposed to agree with people with dementia rather than trying to make them see the truth, but I’ve always prided myself on being direct so lying goes against my grain. How do I lie to her when I hate lying to anyone? – MC
