My mum has AZ. She is now 64 and was diagnosed about 5 years ago. What I am trying to do at the moment are find activities that she can do on her own to a) boost her confidence that she can still do something on her own without help and b) allow Dad even half an hour to read the paper or surf the net etc without having her follow him like a little puppy dog. She used to knit and we tried to get her to knit squares but she is not interested any more. She will help do a jigsaw a little. Does anybody have any ideas that worked for them? Obviously can't buy anything the 5 years plus on the box or she'll get upset or angry.
