 I USED THIS REPLY TO ASK YOU A QUESTION BECAUSE YOU MIGHT KNOW,  DO SOME PEOPLE WHO HAVE ALZHEIMERS KNOW THEY HAVE IT? MY FATHER ISN'T ONE OF THEM BUT HE'S NOT A INVALID. HIS DEAMEANOR IS GREAT, HE'S ALWAYS SMILING AND LAUGHING, HE TAKES CARE OF HIMSELF, DOES HOUSEHOLD CHORES-WASHES THE DISHES, VACUUMES, ECT. HIS COMMUNICATIONS SKILLS ARE BAD BUT I THINK HE DOES CONCENTRATE WHEN ASKED A QUESTION.
WHY I WANT TO KNOW IS THAT THE COURT ARBITRATOR HAS WRITTEN MY FATHER OFF AS USELESS. HE HASN'T DONE HIS HOMEWORK ON AZHEIMERS.
I HAVE TO CONVINCE THIS GUY THAT MY FATHER WILL SUFFER ENORMOUSLY IF HE IS TAKEN OUT OF HIS HOUSE AND SEPARATED FROM ME WITHOUT SOME PERIOD OF ADJUSTMENT.  Thanks

I have a friend who also has Alzheimer's who cleans her home,keeps it picked,but still has maids come once a month to clean too.

I have had Alzheimer's since 1996.I still drive myself to my therapy sessions 3 times a week.I don't cook,as I have left the gas burners on low,& forgotton about them,though hubby always would check.

Not all people know they have AD,call it denial,or they are too far into the disease to know.I don't clean house,I don't care if it gets cleaned or not,that's called apathy.I have other health problems also that keep me from doing too much.

I suggest the person to learn about AD as moving your Dad will most likely upset him,& can cause problems.Have you mentioned to your Dad about moving,& what is his reaction??

Does his Dr.have any say in all this that is going on?He should!

HE'S IN DENIAL. WHEN I ASKED HIM IF HE WANTED TO MOVE TO FLORIDA WITH ME, HE REPLIED,"WHY SHOULD I MOVE, THIS IS MY HOUSE". THERE IS NO WAY MY FATHER WILL LEAVE THIS HOUSE ON HIS OWN. HE'S LIVED HERE FOR 50 PLUS YEARS. iF HE WERE FORCED TO MOVE, IT WOULD UPSET HIM TO SICKNESS, I KNOW IT. IN THE LAST FEW MONTHS, I'VE CHANGED DOCTORS. HE IS IN THE CARE OF THE VETERENS ADMIN. I HAVE AN APPOINTMENT WITH THE PHYSC NEXT WEEK. WILL POST RESULTS-THANKS FOR THE INFO-GOD BLESS

Mikey B..........I really am happy that you changed docs as well for your Dads sake.Just because he has alzheimers does not make him useless.You are right as well as far as him not wanting to move as you posted he has lived in that house for 50 plus yrs and that would no doubt shake him up.Too many changes can make things worse for him(my opinion)I hope you get some answers and some peace of mind soon ...Take Care and God Bless you and your Dad
