What are the most challenging memory-related situations for people with early stage Alzheim… by Connie b. Dellobuono
Answer by Connie b. Dellobuono:
Memory loss varies in each person who are experiencing the early stage of Dementia that transforms into full blown Alzheimer's Disease. A senior was driving for 4hours because she does not know where and why she is driving. A friend could not recall new memories and walks slow and imbalance. A grandpa becomes distant and cannot sleep at night and later on became angry and aggressive. A 65yr old does not want to change her clothes or shower for a week and mumbles without any sense, this started when her partner died. There are many more stories of Alzheimer's disease but some are mild, they just sleep more and pets their stuff animal toys. Be with them always as they need to navigate the confusion in their brain but early stage is full of emotions.
