My father has had Alzeimers since early 2008. Right now, he seems to know who most people are but gets confused about what is going on around him. He can't take directions (like "sit over here") and he doesn't make a lot of sense when he talks. He just started physical therapy because he is having a hard time moving around and is in pain. He can't read or write anymore but still watches tv (doesnt really understand it though). He is on the Exelon patch along with other meds. My mom is having a hard time helping him bathe, brush his teeth etc. She is NOT someone who will go to a support group and has never been on a computer in her life. She frequently gets impatient with him. I have 4 sisters, 3 of whom are around town but I live the closest-less than a mile away. We are all trying to help our mom as much as we can but dont know what to do. He resists being "babysat". He says he can be left alone in the house but he really can't. My mom will leave for an hour tops and he will just sit on the couch and listen to the tv. Where does it all go from here? This is my first posting.
