'Two years ago my grandmother had to come live with my mom. She was 86 and healthy, but beginning to forget to pay her bills, take her BP meds, and she wasn’t eating healthy enough.
The first thing Mom did was take her to the doctor for a full check up to see how her overall health was doing. The doc said she had the beginnings of Alzheimer’s, and put her on medication for it (sorry, I can’t remember the name of the pills! :/ ) The doc said to try the pills for 6 months.
Within a week or so, Grandma became difficult to deal with: she didn’t like anything and had trouble remembering the names of close relatives. She was so cranky, she wouldn’t eat her food, and didn’t like anything.'
