I hate to be a downer but I could use some "in the trenches" advice on how to deal with a family member having Alzheimer's disease. My vibrant 71 year old mother was just diagnosed with this awful disease and I am devastated! I have been reading up on the illness but would like to talk to someone who has or is going through this process. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. I am hoping that none of my small band of followers have insight about this but if so, please add anything you would like or if you'd rather, you can email me privately at email@example.com
As my grandmother used to say, "Aging is not for the faint of heart". How right she was!
