Hi, I am new to this site. My father died in 1991. He had alzheimer's disease. Now, my family and I are dealing with my mom. We believe she has it too, or some form of dementia. She is still living alone in her own home, but we have a nurse that goes there M-F 1 to 3pm to make sure she has lunch and takes her pills. Then, either my sister or I go there at supper time to make sure she eats supper and takes her pills. It is getting to be more frustrating as time goes on.
She is a very unhappy person, so unlike the way she used to be. Right now she is angry because we disabled her car. A doctor told her that she can't drive any more, but she doesn't remember that (or believe it). She is 81 yrs old and has been gradually getting worse starting about 6 to 8 years ago. Can't actually remember when this all started.
Anyway, I could go on and on, but I just wanted to say hello.
I added a Title to your thread ......this way you will get more responses..Lyn
