Mum is 72 and in her 7th year of alzheimers diagnosis and lives at home with my 71 year old da who is her carer. Over the past couple of years her depth perception has deterioratied and although she was able to walk needed a wheelchair for outside of the house. Recently she has been admitted to a specialised alzheimers unit as she has lost her mobility. Mum will not stand up, she says she will but when any attempt is made to assist her she gets extemely anxious and screams and cries. On numerous occasions even the words " do u want to go for a walk" will make her cry. My dad and her 6 daughters and 1 son want her home, she was only admitted because she would not show any sign of movement for my dad. I guess what im asking is has anyone else been through the same situation and is there any hope of regaining movement. Ps she has walked twice since been in the unit but realised she has done it and then sits on the ground screaming.
