I know they say that it is happening to younger ones but for me it seems that I am the only one dealing with it. It just helps me to share. As you can tell this is my first time writing about it. Please have the best holiday you can and God take care of you. My wife was diagnosed with Alzheimers Dementia at age 60 after many years of complaining about her memory and having depression related to her struggle. Last year she suffered a blood sepsis leading to a brain encepalopathy setting her cognitive functioning behind.
She has since returned to her prior level of functioning. We have tried available medications, cognitive training and a clinical study. I keep on looking for hope! Reading your story was a true testament of love and nurturing. The disease is one that has robbed me of my mother since she has been diagnosed at age I love her with all my heart and until there is a cure I send you and your family well wishes. Your amazing! I could add my name except for the kids, mine are grown and that is a blessing-but all you feel, I feel.

Karen, Thanks for the uplift. My wife was told she has both Alzheimer's and FTD in I had to give up the good fight yesterday and placed the love of my life in a basic care nursing home. Hard day, but I'm getting her better care there than I can provide at home with hired help. God gave you the strength and you accepted it and and you plow on!
I am so impressed. I am dealing with watching my mom die both physically and as the person I knew and loved. I cannot imagine a day where my mom doesn't know who I am. And yet, like you said, it will only get worse. My mother is 96 and has had Alzheimers for the past 15 or more. It has been difficult all along, but after the first few years of sadness, anger and frustration, I have learned to live a "normal" life with mom. I go out to do the shopping, and she is always with me. When I do the wash, she helps with the folding.
She counts the pills to put in our containers I am watching. My background is Psychology, and I have applied this logically in our life. I do not help her unless she requests it, or I see she cannot do it on her own. Continue with the same environment, and the same daily life.
Any changes are very negative. Days are good, and days are sad, but things must continue as "normal" as possible. Good luck to all.

Although the official diagnosis was a shock, there had been clues that something was off. Then, when I got home he would follow me everywhere. And if I took my clothes off and got in the shower, he would take his clothes off and get in the shower too.

Incredibly, the tour, which included kids Cal, Shannon and Ashley in the band, ultimately expanded from its original five-week run to shows in 15 months. He chose to keep working.
