    Alzheimer's Disease

Group Details

    Alzheimer's Disease is a thief that gradually robs your mind. There are several medications that can slow down the process but to this day there is no cure. It has a huge impact on the family. My father died 2 years ago after many years of having to watch him decline. He was a well loved Pediatrician. My mother and I kept him at home as long as we could and 2 years later he passed away. This Group will discuss the medical part of this disease and also the impact on the family

There is a reason behind this. The selling of all kinds of health supplements, minerals and vitamins is a lucrative business. No big company would ever take the risk of introducing a name that could potentially harm and lower the sale of all other nutritional items. The same holds water for the pharmaceutical countries too.

    I think I am as overbearing as your mother. I just realized I need to let up a little too. Yes it is frustrating and overwhelming, but like you said, we need to "let go of the little things!" I think I will take action and "let go" and enjoy my father's company than to dwell on the hardship alzheimer's causes families. Thanks for the wonderful insight!

    My Noni is 81 years old. She has no clue what time it is, what day it is, what she ate for lunch, if she had lunch (or any other meal for that matter). She spends most of her days vegging in her easy-chair, staring at the Tv, not in any realm of time. Grampa is 90 years old. He suffers plain aging demensia. It cracks him up that he can't remember details. It scares him and frustrates him that he can't leave the house (or drive-at all) without telling someone other than Noni. Both recognize all of us, appreciate us. BLESSING!! What bothers me most is the way my mom is handling them. She is putting herself, her needs and desires for her parents on them, and they just aren't capable. She isn't comming to terms with their melting minds. I keep telling her that, "It is what it is." They have good days and bad. They don't remember anything, ever, and aren't going to. The disease is what it is. I pray for my mom more than my grandparents; they are contented with eachother. My mom is the one tormented. Her anger and frustration has built an air of gloom and overbearing wardenship around them. She treats them like children, when in my opinion, she should treat them like beautiful birds in a majestic cage. Feed 'em, talk to 'em, play with 'em, keep 'em safe, and let them breath free on occasion. Don't condemn them, lecture them, or belittle their intentions. IT DOESN'T HELP. Prayer helps. Giving to God what we don't understand and can't change, helps. I pray my mom figures this out before my grandparents die. I'd like her to enjoy what time she has left with them.

    My father is 78-years-old and has Alzheimer's dementia. In January, 2009, I put him in the nursing home in the Alzheimer's unit. However, there were too many incidents of "unexplained bruising and minor injuries." After awhile, I was overwhelmed with guilt because my father was a non-violent, gentle, caring, christian role model, so I brought him home in June. There are days when he is agitated, stubborn, and just plain old hardship (on me), but I'm THANKFUL for the days I have with him, and thank GOD for giving me a loving father, because I miss my mom (may she rest in peace!) I hope that he will be with me for a long time, and that I have the strength, wisdom, patience, and understanding to provide proper care and give my unconditional love in making his last few years as comfortable as the life he gave me.
