I hear everyone saying numbers of stages, how can you tell? Our Dr. says our Mom is Moderate Stage? She was until this broken arm, now I have no idea where she is with this? Help?

Hello C.Lane,
On the alz.org website go under the "Alzeheimer's Disease" section & scroll down to Stages, it will list the stages & descriptions & you can compare the descriptions to your mom & get an approximate idea of the stage.

Hope this helps.

The disease is like a rollercoaster though, you'll see decline, decline, decline, and then all of a sudden, you'll see improvements for a while. Learn to love those times!


Thanks Theresa, I am suffering from Early-on-Set Alzheimer's. The words you just quoted are the feelings that I am having right now. I can feel myself declilning, yet there is a part of me that I can see or feel improvements, or acceptance. And yes, I do love these times. Thank you again.

Good luck to you! My grandmother had EOAD, and I know my mother worried about that so much. She was fortunate to have a later onset, which was seen in her aunts as well.
