Welcome To Alzheimer’s In The House

Alzheimer’s In The House was created because my Wife, Sue has had a number of health problems for several years, no doubt some of them will be mentioned here from time to time. About four months ago we started to notice she was having memory problems. We were quite concerned because her Mother has Alzheimer’s disease. Her Grandmother passed away as a result of Alzheimer’s, and the family has reason to believe her Great Grandmother was also a victim of Alzheimer’s but in her case it went undiagnosed. When Sue went in for testing they first told her she had Dementia. Now they tell us she has and are treating her for the first stage of Alzheimer’s disease. So to help her (us) out I've taken on a few more of the household duties/chores. I know that I'm not the first person to find theirself in this situation. Sue and I had her Grandmother in the home with us for five years before she had to go into a care facility. Back then I was working full time, Sue was the primary live in care giver.

Alzheimer’s In The House will be a place for us to tell others what we're doing to deal with the problem of living with Alzheimer’s. We hope others will share their stories/solutions to problems with all of us. We'll also share news about new treatments or possible cures, Hope. If you know of anyone that is dealing with Dementia or Alzheimer’s disease tell them to stop in and see us.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.
