Connie was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease 2 years ago. Until recently, she was able to care for herself. Last week Connie’s daughter, Laura came to check on her after work and she was very agitated and confused. She was pacing in the kitchen and very upset because the dishes were not clean. There was blender on the counter filled with water and bubbles brimming over the side. When Laura looked closer at the blender pitcher it was filled with forks and spoons. Connie was now looking at her feet she then looked up at Laura, eyes full of tears.
