14 Alzheimer’s Patient Cartoons

Tom’s wife’s mother suffered from Alzheimer’s for nineteen years.
She worked as a social worker evaluating aging patients.
These cartoons are an effort to look on the bright side of a difficult situation remembering strange behaviors taken aside may be humorous.

Some other funny ideas:

Puts milk in every bottle

Locked things drive her nuts because she cannot find the key

Afraid to fall so did not bathe

Did not bathe because did not want to stand in rain.

Drive around so he could find his bedroom.

They let her wander, pilfer and roam as much as she wanted.

She would fall asleep in the waiting room.

You kids must have been bad because her nerves are shot.

You've lost weight since the last time I saw you.

You want some birthday cake? "You can stick that cake where the sun doesn't shine."

Patient says, I'm pregnant. I'm going to name her after my mother."
