Hello, Everyone. I am new to Healing Well. My wife is approaching end stage early onset Alzheimer's. I am her sole caregiver. She was first diagnosed in October, 2010. I also am caregiver for my 18 year old autistic son. I welcome this forum.

Hi zoomd - welcome!

Do you have Care Aids come in to take care of your wife so you can have a break?

Yes. But the company is very unreliable. Some of the aides do not show up. When they do, it is normally a newly hired young person. They cannot fry an egg sunny side up or clean. When the replacement person shows up about 10am, I have already given my wife a shower and breakfast. My wife still can walk and sometimes finger feed herself. I am looking for another home health agency. Thanks for asking.

I am new to healing well also and actually joined due to suspecting Lyme disease. I read this topic also as my mother has primary progressive aphasia which affects her speech and she is now non verbal and has affected her memory and has severe dementia. She is in a memory care unit. I also have a 3 year old son with autism who is getting extensive therapy. So I know how difficult and stressful this must be.
