I have been on the forum a few times looking for information about alzheimers.
Just wanted to let everyone know that has helped me, that my father passed away. He suffered for over 8 years with alzheimers. He was only 75 years old when he passed on. He was a wonderful man and I will miss him more than words can say. My mother was his caregiver and is an exceptional woman. She truly loved him and never left  his side. I know how difficult it was for her but she made a choice to never leave him. She took him and my children on a trip this summer, a vacation my children will never forget. He was in a hospital bed for the past several months when they came home  and declined very quickley. He had is entire family with him when he passed. I know that he is happy  and can see us all very cleary now. It truly is the disease with a very long goodbye. I know that everyone situation is different than the next. But please make sure that you tell you loved one how much you love them while they are still here. Hold them, touch, them, sing to them..... do everything you can to tell them know how much they are loved. I know my dad passed on knowing that we all loved him. I wich everyone well in the long journey they will be taking with their loved one.
