Someone with Alzheimer’s disease may start rummaging or searching through cabinets, drawers, closets, the refrigerator, and other places. He or she also may hide items around the house.
Researchers have found that having one or more first-degree relatives with Alzheimer’s put people at significantly higher risk for the disease.
Effective communication with anyone under any circumstances is vital to nurturing a relationship. People with Alzheimer’s and other dementias may present verbal challenges because of their changes in thinking and cognition.
