My friend is still very mobile but forgets everything and repeats herself! I care for an old friend who has Alzheimer's. I'm not sure she needs full time care yet. She can still feed herself, shower, dress, etc. When she started getting her medications mixed up and not taking them at the right times, I would individually wrap them for her with the date and time to take them. This seems to work most of the time. My concern is that she doesn't remember things from one moment to the next and repeats the same information and stories within minutes of the last time she recounted it. Although she can still take care of herself she has recently mistaken the TV remote for her cell phone! She doesn't use the oven anymore but will make herself lite meals, salads, toast, cheese & crackers, uses the microwave. I prepare dinner for her at night. She watches TV a lot, she still feeds the cats and takes pretty good care of herself otherwise. I've been living with her since May 2013. Up until recently I didn't feel the need to get someone to be here when I'm away on weekends, but now I am concerned. I've researched the medical references and I think she is in late stage 1 or early stage 2, but she is still cognizant & mobile enough to where I just don't know. She is upset with me when I suggest getting someone to be here with her and says she will be fine. What to do?
