Your Skin Never Gets Alzheimer's: It Always Remembers Caresses and Scars

The Sense Of Touch Always Remains - article

Grandma and I always hold hands, hug and kiss.  Grandma has her good days and her bad days.  The one thing that always remains is how good it makes her feel if we are touching each other.  Your family member may not always remember who you are, but they know that a hug feels good.  It is especially important for loved ones who live in a nursing home. The staff at a facility takes care of the person, but they do not show physical affection.  The sense of touch is the last sense to remain, up until the end of life.
