Hi, 

My mother has increased in her agitation as it relates to objects. She has always been a compulsive shopper so the disease has enhanced that feeling. Lately, when we walk around the block, she likes to pluck a flower from a bush. At first I thought it was harmless, but now, she feels like she *HAS TO* get something every time we go on a walk. Our caregiver notified me that today she wanted to take a pot from someone's garden. When we tell her calmly that we cannot do this, she gets upset and shuts down. 

How do you address stealing for folks with EOAD?

Thanks,

Natasha
