I am new as a caregiver my 87 yr old Mom with dementia, she came to live with me 6 months ago when I found her not able to take a shower or dress herself. I take her 2 days a week to Adult Day Care it gives me a break and her a break from me and she can talk with others that have the same disease. Now the Adult Day Care nurses suggested the physical therapy. Mom refuses a walker. She does have heart disease mitrial stenosis so if she walks too fast she gets dizzy and sometimes passes out.
