Non Stop Walking And Talking In Alzheimers Patient?
A myALZteam Member asked a question 💭

Hi.
My mom has alzheimers. And is going through a phase where she can't sit down for more than a few minutes at a time . She just walks up and down all day. She also doesn't stop talking. Sadly she doesn't make sense when she talks and mixes everything up. But she talks non stop.
We were just wondering if this is a normal phase that alzheimers patients go through?
And if there are any tips to help her relax?
Thank you in advance
