I often wonder if my great grandmother had AD. She was placed in a nursing home after a severe stroke, she refused any type of rehabilitation. She was placed at the nursing home while my mother was pregnant with me. We visited her often and she passed away in the late 80's (I was around 10 or so when she passed if I recall correctly... it has been a while now and I was very young, it was after 1987 though I remember that much). Towards the end she would not recognize me had trouble recognizing my mom but did after a short time. The nursing home she was in wasnt great the aroma of urine would smack you in the face as soon as the doors
opened. She would sit in her own urine for at least an hour at times.
It is hard to say if she has AD since there was history of strokes whether she had more that we were unaware of or if it was AD we will never know. This would help to know being that my grandma is now in a nursing home with AD.
Dx with Crohn's 1987, symptoms as early as 1984.
