My mom was recently diagnosed with mild-moderate Alzheimer's disease and was started on Aricept. We have convinced her to move into an independent living facility. As you can imagine she initially agreed and now does not want to go.
Tell me I'm not alone
Hi, I just stumbled upon this discussion board tonight and thought it would be a great way to help cope with my mother's recent diagnosis of early onset Alzheimer's.
If I hear...one more time.Just this morning I saw this on Facebook "People will never truly understand something until it happens to them". After I read that, I came on the Message Board to get my strength for the day and saw this post. Just when I think I have come to the end of my rope, something or someone gives me just enough to keep going until I can right myself. Thank you everyone for your unseen, non judgmental and loving support.?
I pestered the Neuro office and they at least told me that I won't be scheduled for another screening until late fall/early winter. I understand this can be good - maybe the forgetfulness, etc. was due to another cause and it could work itself out by that time.
Early-onset Alzheimer's Disease
I am new to this site, however I just recently started a blog about Early-onset Alzheimer's, as my mother was diagnosed a couple years ago at age 52.
Parent as Caregiver
I'm wondering if anyone knows of a situation where an elderly parent is caring for an adult child with Alzheimer's, and how their experience differs from many of us in the opposite situation.
