Hi there, Alzheimer's is such a curious illness, I'm such a beginner at it, but I get the impression that it only affects part of the brain. Has anyone else had the situation I find myself in........... My Mum's is not too advanced in that she still lives at home with my Dad who is very sick too. She does all the usual stuff like repeating herself endlessly, getting confused, angry, can't concentrate on anything. hallucinates, accuses people of stealing stuff. etc. etc. and I do the shopping for her as she gets very confused in shops etc. I worry constantly that they are going to be soon as risk of being on their own (although a carer calls twice a day for my father) and I will need to look at nursing homes. However.............. the house is always clean and very tidy, Mum dresses quite nicely and cooks the meals (albeit simple) quite well. I wonder if because she did all this before she became ill, is she simply "doing it in overdrive" . It's so curious, obviously I'm pleased for her, but it is in a way quite unnerving. Anyone else experiencing this?
