Hi pr glo, Aside from the arthritis/pain problems, we definitely have a lot in common. In addition to my husband & boys, both my parents had Alzheimers. My Mom 7 years, she died in 99 and my Dad, 8 yrs. He died last year. Talk about stress, which of course is the worst enemy for all of us!
I wish you lots of strength & hope in caring for your Aunt.
Remember to just do what you can do, keep her safe & clean.
Alzheimers attackes the whole family, not just the person.
By the way, at 14, my niece's daughter woke up with RA too...now they are saying she also has fibromyalga. We do have a lot in common. Hang in there!
