Susan Cook

I read your posts religiously and save them, too. The rummaging is a word I hadn't thought of but it sure does fit the actions of my 88 year old dear Mother. Thanks again for all you do.


Hi Susan: I know, it is a funny word but does describe that feverish activity of searching for something.

Thanks for your kind comments and also for taking the time to write.


Disability Training

My grandmother had this tendency throughout her lifetime. She saved everything.. literally! She passed a few years ago due to Alzheimer's, I never thought to make this connection. Could it be just a coincidence, though?


Hi D.T.: It could be a coincidence as ever person who hoards or rummages, doesn't necessarily have dementia.

Did the behaviors get worse as her Alzheimer's disease advanced?

Thanks for writing, Sue
