Hi, Can anyone give me some idea as to what stage of the disease my mother is at the moment. Since diagnosis a few years ago we have been told no more about her condition and we don't see anyone only the C.P.N. every few months. I know we could ask her but the conversations with her are in front of my mother and I would rather not talk about it in front of her. Anyway at present my mother still knows who we are, she can just about eat by herself if things are cut up although she tends to make a mess, her walking has become a lot worse lately and she tends to shuffle and fall quite a lot, she tries to put the gas fire on but does not always do it properly, she can't wash or dress herself and needs to be supervised at all times. She is begining to do strange things such as put her false teeth in her glass of juice and complains about being too hot or too cold at the same time and also things are too tight or too heavy such as clothes etc. She does not get agressive though but very confused and gets annoyed with us as she says we don't give her things although she has everything she wants. I guess she is perhaps in the second stage of the disease but i'm not sure. Hope someone can enlighten me.
