Her coordination is terrible-- one thing I have learned Do not give an Alzheimer patient a clear or white cup-- they can't see it they tend to spill their glass of water.
My son worked with Alzeimer patients & could not wear a white shirt -- they only see your head .It to them looks like the head is floatingif your wearing white ! I never knew that ! So now when she visits I give her a green cup. to drink milk, water, tea, or coffee.If I give her a plate of food she puts it to the right of the placemat.Cutting her food is a challange for her.She should be in a home -- but no one is telling her to move!! Great!! :( I do have POA over her well being .I have a meeting with the socisl worker & physical theripist this fri.See what can be done??
