Mr. Q Quick Links to his Story

Mr. Q arrived here in our home three and a half weeks ago. Mr. Q has been diagnosed with dementia and Alzheimer’s. He has been living alone most of his life and at least the last forty eight years. So I am guessing that will make it even harder for him to adjust to his new surroundings.

Mr. Q can no longer take care of himself. There are a lot of little (as he calls them) things that are problems for him. Some of these he recognizes, while others he doesn’t. For example he realizes he has a speech problem, and sometimes can barely say a couple of words when he should be saying sentences.

He also knows that his memory is not as good as it was previously. Other than that it is mostly conjecture as to what he really thinks or understands. It seems to vary from day to day.

Here are the links to Mr. Q, a six month case study of Mr. Q, an Alzheimer’s resident we had and took care of while he was here in the RCFE. The problems with Mr. Q are not necessarily the same problems others with Alzheimer’s or dementia will have. Each person is different. Some or none of these problems Mr. Q has may manifest in others with the same disease.
