Re: How can you spot early Alzheimers?

OAP .. is your mom on any medication? Sometimes a med, or a combination of them can affect behavior.

Re: How can you spot early Alzheimers?

VoyT,
yeah she is on some meds but she won't divulge what. She tends to pry into others business a lot but she hides her own, so I nor any of my siblings know her true health situation.

You've got a good point, some meds can really have multiple side-effects.

Re: How can you spot early Alzheimers?

Bring her a couple of those 7 day pill box trays that have 4 boxes for each day. Tell her you would like to see how it works, ask her to help you fill it up.

The other option is to snoop through her bathroom, bedside table and purse. Don't overlook vitimins.

Brat,
I've got one of those for myself. Morning, noon, evening, night.

Damn old age is not what I wanted.

Re: How can you spot early Alzheimers?

Brat,
yeah, I like my meds tray. I get out all the bottles on Sunday and fill mine with about 3 pill/tablets/capsules per section. About 10-12 pills per day.

At 54, I took only 1 pill per day, a multi-vitamin.

Today is gonna be a real chore, lots of issues and I'm in the mood to solve them.
