A physical therapist once told me that a walker is not an option for Alz patients as they won't be able to use it correctly. What options are there to help her get around? She's in the mid-late stage.
If i suggest we are meeting someone of shopping she gets worse!
She is mid stage and was diagnosed about 6 months ago. The memory center did not tell her. People are asking if she knows. I figured she would just argue and be more paranoid. Your thoughts?
I am fully aware that each patient is unique with this disease. I still would appreciate hearing your own experiences. From the time that symptoms were first observed how and when was the diagnosis made? Then after that how many years did it take for the disease to progress to its more advanced or final stage?
Worried my husband may get it, his sister is preparing to have it.
My husband is so content that I can’t imagine him ever being aggressive or wandering.
Does sundowners, wandering and aggression happen AFTER he stops being able to recognize people?
Is it inevitable?
At this point I need to do everything for him and he’s not troubled by it.
He’s always been very relaxed. Could he possibly remain so?
Married 5 yesrs..he'll tell people 18..hes so busy with this and that and things I make him do he has no time..I untrue...simple things..like bring cooler to car....never makes it to our destination..I'm not doing so good. Trying to be him and me and get both or ALL done...has actually caused me to have A-fib...help
Sometimes my husband refuses to take meds. He holds the pill in his hand and refuses to put it in his mouth. Other times he puts it in his mouth, holds it, takes a drink of water, swishes it around and spits it out.
He is in his 7th year of ALZ and no amount of reasoning or kind persuasion seems to work.
