Nice to meet you sir!! I really enjoyed your posts. They sound like a book I read recently. The name of it is "The Notebook". It is a story of a man caring for his wife who has AD and he actually moved into the nursing home with her, so that he could continue to care for her. This has also been made into a movie, but the book was better. I listen to books on tape while I am cleaning, cooking, sewing or driving. It is a great diversion and I tend to get more done.
My dad has Alzheimer's and mom cares for him at home. She hope to care for him until the end. Quite an undertaking. I have the utmost respect for you, Lyn and my mom . . . all the folks who dedicate their lives to care for their loved ones who are ill.
