Alzhiemer's bad days but suddenly one day has amazing memory and totally cognizant of those around him.

Started by

My husband was diagnosed with Alz 4 years ago. It went from mildly bad to worse and worse. But suddenly the other day when we visited him in a memory care facility, he seemed much better!! Not normal of course but much more aware of who we were and asking questions about what was currently going on. Is this a normal progression sometimes for Alz??


Any dementia has good days and bad days. Be thankful for the good ones when they happen. Maybe they changed him to medications that are more helpful. Ask the nurses.
When someone with Alzheimer's has some lucid hours or a day it's a gift.
