Hello Sounder and welcome to the Alzheimer's forum at Healing Well.
I'm sorry I don't know anything about
that reaction to nemanda. My dad does take that same drug, but he is steadily declining mentally. So sad. But we really try to enjoy each day with him.
One thing I can think of is that many meds can cause many people to be sensative to the sun. Does your mom spend much time outside. If she is sun sensative because of the meds, she could get a rash with just a few minutes of exposure. Or some people just burn easily. Not sure about
that med though. See if the side affects list sun sensativity.
I see you have two loved ones with Alz . . . I'm sooo sorry Sounder. I hope your are still able to enjoy your time with your mom. Dad and I have been working jig-saw puzzles. He likes to spread the glue over them after we complete them . . . we just do the 25 or 50 piece puzzles so he can enjoy the glueing each time. He doesn't really do well with the puzzle but I guide him with the pieces and we enjoy our time together. He also likes to paint figurines . . . they are quite unique!!
I hope you have found some activities that mom enjoys as well. Oh, we also went for a pedicure one time, he liked that too.
Let us know what you do with your mom.
