I have not visit a side about Alzheimer’s session. I will post after this session
I was looking forward to the event unfortunately I am not in Facebook. Keep in mind not everyone uses Facebook
My parent is 89 years old, I’m her caregiver. I believe she is in the 3rd stage of alzheimers. How can I get her to realize she is believing rules at her condominium that are all wrong. She is determined to believe she can’t hang pictures on her walls, no microwave in the kitchen, nothing on the kitchen floor & under the sink in both bathroom and kitchen. I have tried hundreds of times to tell her to stop this wrong thinking. She is convinced she is correct and I’m the crazy one. Thx
