HAVE YOUR MOM EXAMINED BY A NEUROLOGIST(PREFERABLY ONE EXPERIENCED IN TREATING ALZ
HE WILL BE ABLE TO PRESCRIBE MEDICATIONS THAT WILL REDUCE YOUR MOM'S ANXIETY
It is URGENT that you find a support group in your community.
It is not uncommon that one child will carry the burden of their parent's illness.
My wife is in her 10th year of having AD.
She is now diagnosed as being in the last stage,
so I've lived evry possible burden in caring for her.
u can e-mail me to talk your heart out
I'll be happy to help in anyway.
ONE THING I WOULD CAUTION YOU NOT TO DO
AND THAT IS TO GIVE HER MEDICATIONS BEFORE HAVING HER EXAMINED BY A NEUROLOGIST
