Doris Halwes settles into an armchair to eat dinner.
The armchair faces away from the large window behind her because the lights and traffic peeking out of the darkness agitates Doris.
Nighttime often increases the symptoms of her Alzheimer’s, her daughter and Anderson County Senior Center Director Debbie Lottes said.
On that Wednesday night in January, the 85-year-old Doris pushed around a plate of chicken, corn, potatoes and cottage in her lap.
For one reason or another, Doris didn’t want to eat off that plate.
