My mom's hands and neck have been shaking. Hospice is just telling me that she is declining, as she is in stage 7 of Alzheimer's. But I just don't know if I should get her checked out for this.

My mom's hands would shake a little and sometimes she would get it in her legs. It started in her neck, moved on to her hands.

My mother had that too when she got to stage 7 Alzheimer's. No one ever could tell me what caused it. We did have the neurologist look at it once, but we just got told the usual--that it was part of the progression of the disease. I noticed it especially in her neck.
