I also suggest throughly reading alz.org
Welcome to our world. I'm so glad you found us.
Wow, the diagnosis is still very recent. Give it time.
There is a link for those newly diagnosed. Do ask the help line for that link.
The 36 Hour Day, recommended above, is a great reference. In my opinion, is not good to just begin and read through.
On line, print out: Understanding the Dementia Experience.
Hi Asher, I welcome you to this club that no one would want to join. I have a 26 year old daughter, and a 35 year old son, and a 2 year old granddaughter. I'm 63 and I was diagnosed with early onset Alz twice, a year ago and last February through an FDG Pet Ct scan. Im aware that it's very tough on the children of those diagnosed.
I write a blog about living with this disease, and invite you and your dad to read and connect if you wish.
I would also highly recommend Greg O'Brien's book OnPluto .
This is a book about living with Alzheimer’s, not dying with it. It is a book about hope, faith, and humor—a prescription far more powerful than the conventional medication available today to fight this disease. Alzheimer’s is the sixth leading cause of death in the US—and the only one of these diseases on the rise. More than 5 million Americans have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or a related dementia; about 35 million people worldwide. Greg O’Brien, an award-winning investigative reporter, has been diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's and is one of those faceless numbers. Acting on long-term memory and skill coupled with well-developed journalistic grit, O’Brien decided to tackle the disease and his imminent decline by writing frankly about the journey. O’Brien is a master storyteller. His story is naked, wrenching, and soul searching for a generation and their loved ones about to cross the threshold of this death in slow motion. On Pluto: Inside the Mind of Alzheimer’s is a trail-blazing roadmap for a generation—both a “how to” for fighting a disease, and a “how not” to give up!
