I got the link in a weekly newsletter I subscribe to and decided I should share it. The newsletter itself is a good resource.

There's some really good information in there. I bookmarked some to share with my brother -in-law who is helping care for his mom. She's in the last stage of the disease. The only thing she can still do for herself is feed herself. Walking is becoming much more difficult too. Thanks PF.

Wish we lived closer to help out but it's 11 hours away. It's really hard because we can see how much she has deteriorated but Dad keeps trying to make her better by having OT and PT come out. This last time the therapist was telling him about installing grab bars in the bathroom and getting her a wheelchair. That was something he didn't want to hear. We (all the kids) think she needs to be in the nursing home but so far he is refusing that. It's not easy.

Sometimes it does take something catastrophic to get an AD victim to the care level they need. I'll keep her in my thoughts for safety. This is one disease that is worse on those who don't have it than on those who do.
