I noticed that the positions of "I have AD" and "Younger Onset AD" have been moved.  "Musing" comes between our two forums.  Does anyone know what is the reason?  It's confusing.

Actually, this question should be posted In the Website Issues forum if you have not already done so.  The developers are the only ones that have the answer.

I noticed that today and wondered the same thing.  ??  I don't have a clue. 

I agree that the key for us is placement & permanence.

I posted on Website Issues first. 

I thought some of the Peer Volunteers might know why.

Sorry Iris.  the PV's are just as puzzled as you are most of the time.  That's a change that seemed to come out of the blue.  

    I notice that like forums are now grouped together and it appears the issues have been addressed now!  The Caregivers are at the top and then AD.  I don't remember the previous format.  

As long as the two AD are together and at the located that close  to the top is fine with me.    Now to be consistent...

Pure conjecture on my part....it looks like they tried to order the topics according to popularity, or nearly.


I would never throw a wet blanket over the needs of Alzheimers patients of which Im one. But the preponderance of replies is in the Caregiver topic.


Thank God, those of us that follow this site and have Alzheimer's seem to have been able to use this format.


I say, bring on the challenges!


My disclaimer:
I'm not a professional in this area, only a person with AD that cares about others and can express myself yet. Diagnosed at age 58 in Stage 5, now appear firmly in Stage 4 for now- wonderful meds! I 'm 62 now..

We encourage you to call the Alzheimer's Association's 24/7 Helpline

1-800-272-3900 . Ask for a Care Consultant who will be available

Helpful hints for slowing the progression:

  1. Get Early detection
  2. Start the required drug therapy
  3. Avoid stress
  4. Mediterranean diet with antioxidants and Omega 3
  5. Mental and physical exercise

LATER... Tom
