Household Chores | What's Happening in the Brain

Performing household chores involves a complex series of brain functions. A person must recognize that the chores need to be done, have the initiative to begin the chore, the persistence (and ability) to carry it out and know where it is done. Therefore, it is not surprising that, with the many brain functions that underlie these steps, performance of household chores becomes impaired in Alzheimer's disease . Still, by having a structured routine, many people with Alzheimer's disease adapt, and are able to perform a great number of household chores for a long period of time.
