I don't know where to begin.. We found out mother in law had Alzheimers in 2012...we had been wondering for a few years...this past November we had to place her in assisted living as she kept falling down and would sit all day starring...the first month at assisted living she started to perk up and go play bingo with a group in the home....the last month she has been taken to ER 3x as she says her stomach hurts...this last trip she got very mean with everyone, now thinks everyone out to poison her or harm her, so refuses to eat or take her Meds, visiting nurse went to access her...she refused to let her take her BP....she talks non stop or should say babbles...sometimes can understand words...I am concerned as no eating or drinking will she snap out of this or will this be how she stays refusing everything....

If she is having problems with here stomach it could be a side effect of the drugs she is on. Could have something to do with the diet she is on. It would make sense that she think she is being poisoned if her stomach hurts. Probiotics and change of diet might help with the stomach. Some people us coconut oil to treat Alzheimers. Might give that a try.
