Thanks for the post and advise.
Today my dad is bringing my mom (who has AD) over to visit so am glad that we will be able to spend some time together.
Since she loves visiting her so much my dad has been bringing her here to visit instead of having us go to the nursing home.
She still enjoys looking around at everything and having lunch with my husband and I and of course there is always some surprise waiting for her when she comes.
Since I know her state of mind can change at anytime, try to do all the things I know she enjoys doing and try to make as memories as I can for the future.
She has had alzheimers for many years now (longer than any other member of her family) but because the Namenda and Aricept have made her happier and more loving am trying to enjoy every moment she is where she is today.
Best wishes to you and yours. Write to me anytime.
