Alzheimer's Eating problems

Saturday, August 11, 2012

Basically my granny has Alzheimer's and I am her caregiver while my mom is at work for the summer before I leave for Japan.
I struggle when it comes to trying to take care of her. Today I came in the kitchen and she was eating out of container of I can't believe it's not butter. Nothing else. I was confused. I then saw the cheese and asked her if she was making a sandwich. I got screamed at for asking her that. She proceeded to tell me the cheese was her bread, that I needed to stop controlling her life, and that I need to get out of her house. I basically got the bread out a few minutes later and then she properly made a sandwich.

I am so stressed out...

    Well, at least she's eating. When my grandmother had Alzheimer's she wouldn't eat unless literally forced to. Actually went to the hospital because she didn't eat enough.
