    (e.g., foods, places, songs, etc.), or motions

    (e.g., planning dinner) or handle personal finances
    (e.g., paying bills)
  • Lack of concern for hygiene and appearance
  • Requiring assistance in choosing proper clothing
    to wear for day, season, or occasion

Late (Severe) Stage of Alzheimer's Disease

In this stage, there is almost total memory loss. The individual may:

  • Recognize faces but forget names
  • Mistake a person for someone else
  • Delusions—such as thinking he/she needs to go to work — may set in,
    even though he/she no longer has a job
  • There is a strong need for holding something close for tactile stimulation, nurturing, companionship and comfort
  • Basic abilities such as eating, walking, and sitting up fade during this period; the individual may no longer recognize when he is thirsty or hungry and will need help with all basic activities of daily living.
