During Stage 2 Alzheimer’s disease, short term memory is impaired but long term memory is still intact. The step of reading the grocery items out loud would not be familiar to the resident, so she may have difficulty remembering what the items she needs are. The other steps are tasks that are familiar to the resident and that she has done for many years, so she should still be able to remember how to do them.
