Re: Alzheimers spouse

Dancyn,

I am new to this board also, so don't feel bad about not knowing your way around. I don't either. My husband was was diagnosed with Alz about 5 years ago at age 53. I am still in the working world, so I have a caregiver come in during the day, and I take the evening and weekend shifts. He is still mobile, so I don't have to deal with moving him around. He has atypical Alz in that it started on the opposite side of his brain and has affected his speech very early on. He very rarely says anything coherant anymore. Someone else replied that you have to keep your sense of humor, and I second that motion! Prayer and laughter are what keep me going! Good luck to you!
