Re: alzheimer's in the workplace; how can an employer help?
It would be determined by the specific situation. More information would definitely be helpful. Recently I did hear of a gentleman that had worked for the same company (it happened to be a hotel) for over 45 year. He now has dementia but still comes to work every day and does the same menial job that he always did. It is so ingrained in him that he has no trouble doing it. He just needs somebody to bring him to work, take him to lunch, and take him back home. There is no danger involved for him or anybody else and it makes him happy. For now it works. I can see other situations when it would actually be dangerous to the employee and disasterous to the employer. Post some specifics and maybe someone can help...
