One of the most endearing things Mom did through mid stage Alzheimer’s was discovering all types of “headgear”. You name it she would try it out as a fashion accessory. Here she is with a stainer on her head
She loved her hats to the point it was hard to get the safari hat of her head for a photo op when she exhibited at Westport Art Center.
Often she went for her reindeer antlers which she wore long after Christmas was over.
She even wore them into Rockefeller Center when I was on Dr Oz.
It got to where we almost didn’t see them on her head anymore. They seemed like a natural part of her appearance after awhile and they came in very handy when she would wander off in Stop & Shop or got lost in Ikea. Everyone could spot the “lady with antlers” and return her safely to me. She had all kinds of “antlers” as friends knew how thrilled she would be when they’d give her a new pair.
Sometimes she would go for the “layered look” and it just got out of hand. If we were going to the mall or out to lunch I would have to draw the line. She had to choose just one.
Mom frequently incorporated hats and headgear into her stackings.
