I post some pretty silly stuff on here but this is serious. I made the mistake
of thinking my mom's memory loss was just a part of normal aging and let it go
on too long before acting on her behalf. Fortunately I did act before she became
completely incapacitated and medication has nearly stopped the progression of
her alzheimers, leaving her in a state where she can still care for herself with
only a little help from me. If I had seen this short, simple questionaire a
couple of years ago she would not have lost so much of herself to this disease.
Everyone with an elderly parent or grandparent should answer these questions and
take action before that person you care about becomes someone else.

Agreed, we will ALL suffer/feel the effects of dementure at some stage in our
The currents meds can slow this down, so unless you live to 110, you will not
lose your mind.
As soon as you retire you should get a checkup every six months even when it
seems like a hassle 'cause you feel fit & healthy.
