Atleast they remember your bday... How did they remember your birthday if they don't know your name anyway o.o
OP man up. My grandma still calls my mom Kathy and my aunt Carol Carthy because it's too much effort to remember their names even when they were little kids. She either calls me Carol, Kathy, or Martha, none of which are my names. She almost never calls me by my actual name. Same for my brother.
My grandma has Alzheimer's and she does forget things quite a bit. They remembered your birthday. That's spectacular. I think it's best to offer compassion because it's common to lose short term memory as one ages. I don't think it was personal, love. I'm sure it was embarrassing for them.
When I get super old I want to do something like Nick Swardson talks about in his comedy special "Seriously, who farted?" and give one of my relatives I don't like a gift wrapped steaming pile of shit lol
