My mother has attended many funerals and weddings her whole life. We also include a cemetery visit every Memorial Day. Why if we provide 1-1 care and are able to leave if needed, do we know longer include her in her past routines? Thank you

You CAN, but I’d first ask yourself this: does she sometimes mix up who is dead and who is alive? And, does she sometimes get overwhelmed easily? If she mixes up who is here and not-here, funerals may be confusing and painful. If she’s overwhelmed easily, a wedding is going to be a LOT. It also makes it tougher for you to be present in the moment at these events.
