Is there any one who has parents with dementia?I have two parents with dementia. The early stages. I have been back east since June 17th. I dont want to move back home . I am happy where I am. I am thankful that I could be there for them but my own life needs a lot of mending now. I really need to go home to keep my sanity. This is the hardest issue I have ever dealt with in my life.
I liked this book best and recommend it:
"What You Need to Know About Alzheimer's" by John Medina, Ph.D. copyright 1999. ISBN 1-57224-127-6
If you aren't able to move back home to your parents. Are you moving them to an assisted living or have other family to help?
Dementia is considered a symptom. So, I'm not sure which disease they have? Alzheimer's is considered the most common but not necessarily the only source of dementia symptoms.
Alzheimer's Association has Message Boards/forums etc:
