I am genuinely sorry to hear that your grandmother is afflicted with dementia. If it is Alzheimer’s, the outlook is grim. Alzheimer’s is a terrible condition that steals the memories and identity of its victims, and ultimately debilitates them physically as nicely.
Regardless of whether she remembers ‘you’ or not will rely some on how much time you are spending with her. If you are not her caregiver or do not reside in the exact same household, then it is indeed most likely that she will come to forget who you are. If you are her caregiver, she could forget your name, or just precisely how it is that she knows you, but she will know that you take care of her.
I know it is heart-breaking… but please know that it is not her fault if she does altogether forget who you are. Please do not be hurt if this does take place, since it is some thing out of her control – she is a victim of a terrible disease that slowly will take away who she is. Her accurate regard for you ought to be remembered as it was prior to this condition began to take her memories.
And please remember that even if she can not don’t forget who you
are, she can be comforted by your kindness and caring.
