braiding

When Cristina sits and watches TV she’ll also braid her hair. Something in her brain remembers how and it keeps her hands busy. People at this stage of Alzheimer’s needs to be kept busy at all times. This is also a good thing because her hair is a part of her and she can’t throw it on the floor like she does with everything else she puts in her hands. She has gone downhill so much this year and we are pretty sure it won’t be much longer before she finally forgets how to braid her own hair.
