Mom gets restless, agitated, then settles down, then angry, then nice, then angry again all in 5 minutes? I have noticed lately that she is becoming more resistant than normal. She is also wandering around the house, backtracking her steps, opening her wallet, counting her money, then turning on the kitchen light, walking around the house, going back into the kitchen, shutting the light,etc... she repeats this behavior sporadically. Also she can be critical and screaming mad, then she will be diverted to looking at her fake flowers, and saying how nice they are, then she will get on another tangent. Her mood can do a flip in literally the time it takes to blink so we never know when it will change.
Is this a common problem with Alzheimer's or dementia mid-stage?
