Hello I am another newbie, and find myself on here due to a very unwanted life change, and needing the stimluation of others in a world currently dominated by a Dementia Nursing Home. The problem with Dementia groups is that is the only topic many of them discuss, and I am not in that world on a personal level, ( other than the love for my husband ) and still need a life of my own. Anyone feel the same ?
Dementia is a cruel disease … there are a range of care options to be considered when a dementia sufferer can no longer be totally self sufficient. What care packages have you considered or implemented when a parent or loved one can no longer cope alone?
Today is World Alzheimer’s day (21st September 2012) Has your life been touched by this terrible disease in any way? Have you had first hand experience with a spouse, a parent, or a friend?
Can you share any experience that would be helpful to other Silverhairs friends?
