Getting Hair Done.

Not all days are good days with Alzheimer’s. Sometimes getting ready to leave the house is a chore in itself. Cristina’s eldest son is a hair dresser, so he will brush her hair for her so that it’s not messy when she leaves the house. This day was a not as good as other days. She had a doctors appointment and needed to get read for it. Brushing her hair kept upsetting her and she cried just like a child who doesn’t want you to touch their hair would do. Little things like this can upset someone with Alzheimer’s and they don’t even know why. Cristina used to love doing her hair from dying it, to curls, to what ever she was in the mood for. Funny enough, she still sits and plays with her hair; sometimes trying to braid it.
