My mother in law was dignosed last year with Alzheimers.this last week she has taken to throwing things away, medication, money tearing up photos of her only son and her husband who passed away some years ago .she throws food away also. I visit her twice a day to check what she is throwing away. Her hygene is not good and i clean for her on a monday. It,s so hard as i,m sure it is for all of you. i have a family and i also work. Not sure what to do. we had a visit from social services early this year who said that she was low risk and gave good eye contact !!!!!. her house was clean then. She is much worse although taking aricept ( I feel to no effect). She was on patches but she kept taking them off. just a bit lost, my husband and i dont no what else we could do.
