What is the reason Alzheimer patients forget to drive?
Many teens between 13 and 14 are able to drive. However, states do not permit them to drive because they aren’t yet able to develop the skills required for driving in their early years. In the case of Alzheimer people, the judgement as well as the intricate operation aspect of driving is affected. Do you remember the time the first time you learned how to drive or learnt an entirely new skill… It could be difficult initially however after a few attempts it became easy? In the Early Stage of Alzheimer’s disease, it’s this memory, along with the inability to judge that leads the patient to stop driving. My mom was an Alzheimer Patient. She told me, “I couldn’t back out of my driveway. I was stuck among the shrubbery.and my neighbor was required to get my car out. Mom was never driving ever again!
What is the reason Alzheimer patients become agitated?
Through my many research as well as observations I don’t consider that Alzheimer patients are wandering in circles. As an infant I was observing my great-grandfather’s ‘on Alzheimer’. I observed that he would always start his journey with the correct direction in order to arrive at his destination in fifty miles south… But, during this walk it was common for him to get lost. In my opinion, the majority of the time, he had a goal in his mind. However, the destination was obvious just to him.
Alzheimer’s patients are confused about what to do to reach the destination? They misunderstand with the city or location and the distance as well as the directions to north south, east, and west or the directions to the first, second and and third They confuse left and right. This is why many people give up cooking, driving, and other pursuits – it’s too confusing!
It is now clear that if you’re constantly perplexed day in and day out or minute-by-minute and you experience extreme mood swings, you may be irritable and unruly and you could become delusional and hold that constant conviction that your caregiver is a burglar, a victim of robbery, and a abuser. To comprehend Alzheimer I realized it’s essential to have a solid understanding about Delusions as well as Hallucinations. I was able to accept and understand hallucinations as a condition in which the patient is able to see, hear or even feels things that are not real. But the idea of delusions-the false belief patients believe is true upended me. My mother told me that, ” You are being cruel to me.” I was extremely upset and took it personal, despite the fact that all books leaflets, brochures, and leaflets about Alzheimer’s warn caregivers to Don’t take it personally. Six months later, as I was reading The 36 Hour Day, I came across that exact phrase that many patients with Alzheimer’s relay to their caregivers whenever they’re lost, frustrated or stubborn, not reachable or simply prefer things done in their own way.
