Does Anyone Else See Features Of Paranoia In Their Care Recipient?

Does Anyone Else See Features Of Paranoia In Their Care Recipient?

Even at her best, I see things that are “off” with my significant other. The dementia waxes and wanes, but she often sees people who aren’t there, and asks me about them. “Is anyone else out there?” is a common question I receive at home. Suspiciousness factors in; if I am perceived to have been gone too long at the supermarket, she’ll be angry and accuse me of meeting someone.

How Long Can Alzheimer’s Patients Carry On Normal Conversation?

How Long Can Alzheimer’s Patients Carry On Normal Conversation?

My husbands family who only sees him about 3 or 4 times a year, can’t tell there is anything wrong him. Sometimes I think they doubt his diagnosis and what I tell them. He is on medication, still takes care of all his personal needs, drives in our very small town, and does most everything he used to do. He can carry on a conversation without most people noticing anything unusual. Yet at home with our immediate family, we see small things daily. He looses his phone, wallet, sunglasses all the… read more

My Mother Still Drives And I Don't Think She Should. How Do I Approach This Without Her Getting Angry?

My Mother Still Drives And I Don't Think She Should. How Do I Approach This Without Her Getting Angry?

When she was first diagnosed with Alzheimer's she was already getting lost. The doctor did say that she should not be driving anymore and restricted her. She made my life hell and cried how she couldn't even go to the cemetery anymore to visit my dad's grave. I spoke with the doctor and he allowed her to drive there and in town. Fast forward four years.....She hasn't gotten lost lately (she really hasn't been driving too much lately, I have a tracker on her phone so I know when she leaves and I… read more
