I have been full time caretaker for over a year with 83 yr old mom with Alz living in my home. Many difficult issues with her due to AD ( significant AD abotu mid stage to some latter stages) due to Alz she fell and broke her hip. Had partial hip replacement and in rehab now. Leanring TONS from reading others stories in here. Guess all depends upon how quickly my mom can and is willing to rehab her leg working with PT when she will come home. Taking it one day at a time. In the mean time having a hard time finding things for her to do as she doesn't read any more ( due to AD I am sure) she doesn't so any hobbies with her hands she says she can't do jigsaw puzzles ( we tried) she gets bored of too much TV so she sleeps a WHOLE lot when I am not there and when I am it is VERY difficult to carry on conversations with her due to AD etc.... so I wind up talking to room mates some and she gets angry at them. She use to do crosswords but they just sit there nowand she doesn't do them.
Just trying to find something to exercise her brain and not doing a very good job of it. WHat are some good activities for AD patients I can try on her?
