During the past few months my family has been going thru the process of finding a care facility for m father who has Alzheimer’s.  He was normally cared for by my mother but several months ago she passed away and now we have no choice but to place my father in the care of others.  It is a decision that one person can’t make alone.  We still have not found a facility that we are comfortable placing him in but I heard about a informational live chat that is being held online.  It is being orchestrated by the Alzheimer’s Association and will be tomorrow on April 28th at 8pm CDT.  The link to get to the chat is  I will be attending this chat and I hope that some of you who are facing this decision will join me.
