Hi all, My mom has dementia and Parkinson's and has been going down hill lately, talking less, more confusion etc. But the thing that really has me baffled is that she keeps her eyes closed often, even when she is sitting up talking to me, or while I feed her a meal. When I ask her why, I get no straight answer. She does have macular degenration and is nearsighted but wears glasses that do help. On top of it she seems to have lost her depth perception, which I have read is not unusual. But has anyone else experienced or heard of this closed eyes thing--and it is not that she is dozing off at all, she just chooses to keep them shut. Any thoughts would be much appreciated, I could find nothing online or in books. Thanks.
