Husband Is Leaning To The Right Side... Alzheimer's Middle Stage...

My husband has been leaning to the right side for the last couple of days. He seems more confused than before. He was first diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 2004. He will be 78 on Thursday. We have had a struggle with his memory loss and temper. Including evening agitation and agression for what he wants. Memory problems and repeating himself all day long. Stubborn and strong willed behavior, more so than before. Sundowners behavior treated with rx from Doc.

The leaning issue is a new concern. I will take him into the doc. as soon as we can get an appt. Is this a part of Az. symptoms or perhaps needing an adjustment on the meds. or possibly the later stages of the disease.

Patience and persevering with the symptoms and giving him direction and guidance, daily and sometimes minute to minute.

Thanks for any feedback.

Answer

This could be a medication issue, but it could be a stroke symptom or any number of things - I'm glad you have an appointment. Watch carefully, as you may need to get him to ER.
