I'm sorry about
your mum having alzheimer's, Myself. But holy crap, I'm impressed by how well she's dealing with it. All I usually hear about
are personality changes that are invariably for the worse, so it's nice that your mum has managed to retain her good-naturedness.
My dad is 82 now and I dread, dread, dread the thought of him getting alzheimer's. He has little enough impulse control as it is, he goes from calm to screaming in 0-2 seconds. Pure misery for anyone who is in his company at the time.
Best of luck to you and your mum anyway.
