My wife was diagnosed with Alzheimer's 6 months ago at the age of 59. She seems to have lost the ability to occupy herself,and unless I do something with her, she will often just sit or fall asleep. She used to be an avid reader, but now seems unable to concentrate for more than a few minutes. Does anyone have any experience of things I could get her to do which will enable me to not feel guilty if I leave her alone to do jobs around the house (or send e-amils to the Forum!)?
