Do you know the signs of late stage of Alzheimer's Disease? - Alzheimer's #1

An electric fireplace (Photo: Overstock)


It was late Winter when I went to Claire's house. 

Chilled outside but in the house was warm enough.

I saw an electric fireplace was on. Claire's uncle was sitting on his wheelchair in front of the fireplace. He was a big guy, and turned around. 

When he saw me, he unlocked his chair and got couples of little steps toward me and he moved his right hand to me. 

I thought he wanted to greet me by hand shaking, but he pulled my hand and kissed it.

He always did the same things to every woman. Women only. He could recognize between man and woman. 

Not always! Because he asked about me to his nurse aid, “Who's the man?” I guessed he didn't see my ponytail. 

He went back to his spot, in front of fireplace. He tried unbutton his top pajama, and took it off. He wanted to put top pajama on through his feet. Claire came to him and fixed it.

He counted his pajama buttons, “One, two, three, four!” And he said, “Four!”

His nurse aid said, “Yes, you have four buttons.” He recount again and tell her, recount again and tell her, again, and again. 

I asked Claire that was he easy get upset, angry, mad, or fight?



Illustration only

Claire believe it depends on how we talk to him, they always try to turn his attention into another one, and keep him with the activity that he able to do it.

He wandered and did flip the time. He sleep tightly at day time and awake at all night long.
It was a little hard when he insisted to get out of house in the middle night to go church for Mass. 

Every time he want to go church, he tried to get up, pulled the handle door, but the door had been locked and he kicked the door, screamed that he would be late to go Mass.

Spring, I didn't meet Claire. 

Summer now. I heard from Claire that his uncle in the late stage Alzheimer's (Stage 7 or severe decline). He lose words and he is not able to talk. 


He has difficulty to swallow. He eat pureed meal and drink thick liquid. He has infection of pneumonia. He has trouble in breathing and need breathing treatments. Hospice is taking care of him. He behaves well, quite, and calm.

  6. Dramatic story, Evi. I only hope that science behaves with dignity and integrity in the containment and treatment of these inevitable consequences that living brings.

    Big hug. Dramatic story but necessary to reflect.

  26. Hi dear friend !
    thank you for kind visit and words on my place!

    i absolutely loved your blog .
    thank you so much for touching post ,back in village i saw one elderly man suffering with such disease

    my parents left this world almost 9 years ago ,mom was independent until her last days (70 plus) but father paralyzed 3 months before his departure and it was not easy of course

    i am in entering in my 50s and believe me i have no passion for long age which cause pain to not just patient but care takers either
