Need some advice re: My Grandmother
My grandmother is 83 years old and we have been told by her doctor she shows signs of Alzheimers. She does seem to forget lots of things that she never used to forget. There is no dementia at this point but she will lose money, lose her glasses, forget things that happened in the past, forget to take a shower, etc.
Also she sleeps a lot. She goes to bed at 8 pm and sleeps until at least 10 am when someone has to get her up, and she sleeps during the day also. She is not on any medications that would cause this and this is not like how she used to be.
Is this a side effect of Alzheimers? I told my mom I would try to find out, mom is living with her right now and reports to me how she is doing.
It's amazing the difference between her and my grandad, he has heart disease and prostate cancer yet gets up very early and works out at the YMCA. I am worried about my Gabby (my pet name for her) and hope to find out more about this.
