Lane Simonian posted a good article about the concept of treating Alzheimer's versus finding a cure for Alzheimer's.  I think it is important for new patients to realize that there IS something that can be done.  We are not left adrift. 

When I was still searching for answers, one of the family doctors told me, "There's nothing that can be done so why bother?"  I so didn't need to hear that.  I'm very glad I soon came to this site and learned about the use of medication, Best Practices, alternative treatments such as aromatherapy, reducing stress and keeping a positive attitude.  ALL of the above I learned ONLY from this message board!
