This blog is about life with my husband who was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer's and Frontal Lobe Dementia in 2008. He was 64 at the time although now, knowing more about the disease, Alzheimer's was present many, many years ago, which is why early detection is so important. As you read the blog the character"Al" that I created in 2008 represents the way that Alzheimer's is invading our daily lives.

  4. Placement is undoubtedly one of the harshest things we caregivers ever have to do...there are many tears and feelings of guilt that bubble up to the surface on an unending basis...the only thing that helped was the passage of time, how well our spouse is dealing with the transition and the realization that this new living arrangement will keep your spouse safe...Don't feel guilty Sheri, you have done your utmost best for the boys and as the boys adjust to their new routine you'll see you made the right decision for everyone...it is one more step down the awful road of Alzheimers, and it's a miserable journey, but the sun will shine again, Bob will adapt and you will find solace knowing that everything you did was for this man who you love so much...Hugs, Tanis
