: As I look for new messages daily, I am surprized that there are not more to view on this, and another site i have visited, Alzheimers has taken over a big part of my life since my mother has come to live with me, and our local support group, as well as the postings on the net really help me to feel I am not alone in this. It may be the misery loves company theory, but also the hope that somthing that worked for someone else to ease the burden on myself, or somthing has just been discovered to help those afflicted with this disease, that I just have to keep searching.
: Does any one know of an additional web site that has more postings, or info than this one? I will keep visiting them all since my life has changed so drasitcaly to care for my mom.
Pam, I can sympathize with you. I am trying to take care of my 84 year old mother. You would think there would be more info out there for people like us. Is your mother incontinent yet? If so, how do you handle it? Mine is, and that has caused a tremendous problem. I spend a fortune weekly for her disposable diapers and I have been trying to find out where I can purchase the washable kind. This might sound trivial to some people but it has been a BIG (and expensive) problem for us. What are some of your mother's symptoms? When was she diagnosed with Alzheimers? My mother has been diagnosed with dementia but I sometimes wonder if the diagnosis was the correct one.I know this does not answer your question but like you, I just need someone to talk to.
