I have just been explaining to a new OT on the block why mother needs a handrail for outside steps: mother's failing ability to judge risk is part of it. At first not seeming to get it at all, the OT then outlined how she had heard that people with dementia would rearrange their bookshelves out of alphabetical order. ???!!! No doubt some do; but this does not quite reflect the grasp of the condition I would like an OT to have. The OT is coming to do the preliminary assessment, so I've got what I wanted; but seriously? I know she's new, but… Would you say anything to her?
