I cared for an Alzheimer patient for more than 20 days last month. She is a walker. And love riding in cars. She can still call the name of her youngest son. At times, she blanks out and cant finish her sentence. She loves her dog and people and greets each one as she takes a walk on the park and the beach.
By late afternoon, I would massage her hands and feet to relax her. She is sensitive to hot and cold temperature. And she folds clothes and helps clean organize the house. As caregiver, one must be busy watching of her every move. She can eat well when presented with food on the table. At 72, she can live long with her daily walks in the sun.
