urine hoarding

I think my brother may have some sort of dementia or alzheimers. He has been saving and storing his urine in containers in his room for several years. I find it and chastize him about it but he continues to do it. Is it part of some disorder? He used to drink a lot of alcohol, maybe that has something to do with it.

I'm being looked after by someone with Alzheimer's

My Grandparents are my caregivers: I am 14 at the moment and there are many fees that need to be paid, and places that I need to be driven.

My Granddad is in charge of keeping a roof over our head and he has Alzheimer's. It's not serious yet, but we can see ...

And he gets lost in the way - there are incidents that he forgets for what reason he had started off from home and also he forgets things that he used to keep at the same place all the time. ...
