HI and Weklome to Healing Well ...

There is much to learn about AD and what it can and does to our loved ones
There are many threads on here that are well worth reading as well I would suggesst you read in Resources and in my opinion the 36 hour Day Book is the best

The progression is different with all AD or 99% of them I would say .....

I am so sorry that your brother has this DD ..I lost Mom to this and complications and I am now looking after my dad who has Alzheimers as well ....
He is going downhill but I think more from a broken heart ya know ...
As I said Irishman read thu some threads I will bring some pertinent ones up for you with links for info as well in the resources you will find Alzinfo.com....which is great as well for info
You are not alone in this now and i do pray you will continue to post and stay with us here .....

ANY other questions plz ask away ..I have been out of commission myself last few days sick....
I am sure others here will also give you some input

Take care and post again
