Just found this forum, so am interested! It often feels very isolated dealing with dad's Alzheimer's! Dad always feels cold during the day. He wears a vest, shirt and a jumper. Has a large cardigan to put on too, he has fingerless gloves and he uses a small microwaveable 'lavender' cushion. His clothes are all cotton or wool. He is able to sit in front of an open fire or close to a warm radiator. The problem is that he sweats up to 4 times a day as if he has 'overheated'. He only sweats across his back and chest and down his arms. Since there are no thyroid issues, or any other physiological explanations, the GP suggests that the part of the brain perceiving heat has degenerated but his autonomic response to heat is normal. He says we need to manage his behaviour and resist his attempt to seek heat. We do our best but it is hard persuading him to wear fewer layers when in front of a heat source and put on more layers when away from direct heat. The constant changing of clothes is hard for him because he cannot remember the order in which things come off and go on, yet part of him is aware that he ought to know and he hates 'being helped'! Has anyone else come across this? Does anyone have any helpful tips?
