In Reply to: bearing bad news posted by Sandra on October 09, 2000 at 20:13:36:

: How are you supposed to tell someone you love that they might have alzheimer's? Without offending that person or upsetting the family members? Anyone please give me some advice.

It's never a good feeling to be the one to deliver bad news. Now as far as alzheimer's, there is no real easy way to approach it, espcially because alzheimer's carries certain amount of stigma. Plus who wants to hear that they may be getting dementia? But being straight forward with it is the least painful way, I think. If these are people you love and vice versa, they'll find a way to see that you mean well.
