I am so worried about this. My mum died last March from Alzheimers at the age of 61 (which was quite young for an Alzheimers sufferer.) She had the illness for 9 years so was even younger.
 
I am just so worried now that maybe this disease is hereditory. Because I have watched her go through this, I dont think I could go through this myself.
What are the chances of siblings etc having this also.

Hi and Welcome to Healing Well
I am glad you found us here
Well looks like we can support one another thru this my mother passed on March 20th of last yr at 65
Also way to young in my opinion
I look after step dad now with this disease
It robs us so doesnt it
SOME researchers do believe it is hereditary others do not believe that however .......
I am hoping you will continue to post so we can share some of our grief and our happier memories of pur Mothers
I am still in denial of course and look for her daily my dad calls me by her name it hurts but I know he does so miss her
I am afraid he will not be here much longer either his heart is broken and he is constantly looking for MOm
PLease check out resources in yellow at side as well as other threads on here
A good site as well thru HW resources in Alzinfo .com
God Bless

Sorry I should have said I BELIEVE chances are very low for you
Talk to your doctor and there are things you can do with him for this as well

Oh my word I am so sorry for you but also glad that we found each other. My mum died on the 6th March 2006. I thank God that you are here. Its such a relief as I am trying to deal with this on my own. Your Dad too, oh my word. . . how are you managing?. I guess we just do dont we? When we love someone we hold on and do whatever we can. God bless you and may He bless you for what you are doing.

I hope we can help each other and i hope you dont mind if I stick around. I havent actually dealt with this and still believe she is around. . . . .somewhere anyway.

I pray my mum is with the Lord as we did chat about this while she was ill and she did repeat things after me so with the faith that I have, I believe she is with God.

If you dont mind, I would love to pray daily for your dad. What is his name? Where do you live. Are you in the UK?


Treat people in the way you want to be Treated.
