Hello, I  am new to this site and looking for lots of answers.  My Mom is 63 years old and I am very afraid she has the onset of AD.  Although she will not go to the doctors or admit she has a problem.  She has severe short term memory loss.  She often doesn't realize that she has asked us things ten times or we have just told her what time we are leaving to go somewhere.  Just recently she was watching my niece and nephew.  We fed them lunch together.  Then I left.  I came back 1 hour later and she was feeding them lunch again.  I said Mom, what are you doing.  She said it is lunch time I am feeding them lunch.  I said Mom we just fed them chicken nuggets.  She said oh yeah.  I am not sure if she really remembered or not.  My Dad is no longer alive so it is up to my sister and I to take care of her.  I don't know what to do , I think I need to get her help, but how.  Her health otherwise is very good.  Please help me.

Welcome
I am so sorry you have had to come here but here at least you will find answers and get support
It sounds like your mom is in need of a doctor preferably.......... Neuroligist....SHE needs this IMO
This type of doc will give her the going over and tests to see what she is at on the scale .........
Medications do help with some when caught in time sounds like she is not that bad so far
* I found my dad out wandering in Pajamas at 12:30 am the other night said he was going to get mail ......*
I have just lost my mom past March and it is still raw and hurts like Hades
I looked after her too
Please know you are not alone and I will try to help you out as much as I am able
Resources in yellow at side are great too
I recommend the "36 Hour Day" Book
Please post and let me know whats happening .....
God Bless
Lyn
