My husband is constantly saying his brothers just told him to meet him somewhere. They have all died but he doesnt believe me.

He gets all dressed and no matter what I tell him , he wants to leave the house, I have tried Cowboy movies to distract him and that sometimes works. What else can I do?

Has anyone tried CBD oil? I've had someone try to convince me she knows someone who made a miraculous turn around. (not cure, but improvement) I know it's reaching, but just curious if anyone has tried it, and what were the results.

thanks,
Sonia

Are mini-blackouts a symptom of Alzheimer's?

Are mini-blackouts a symptom of Alzheimer's?

Dad told me today that he has this weird thing -- he'll be reading a book or writing some notes, and then "everything is gone." It took a bit of conversation to understand what he meant. As best as I could decipher, it's the same affect of closing his eyes for a few seconds. I asked if he thinks he just fell asleep briefly, but he says it feels different than nodding off. He says it lasts only a few seconds each time. It's the first time he has told me about it but he… read more

Has anyone else experienced a parent getting very angry to the point of almost getting violent ? What are your suggestions?

Has anyone else experienced a parent getting very angry to the point of almost getting violent ? What are your suggestions?

My mother's doctors have suggested/told my mother that she should no longer be driving. She now lives in an independent living facility where transportation is provided. Earlier this year, I borrowed my mother's car. My sister and I decided this would be a good way to transition into not returning the car to my mom. Recently, we told my mom that we would not be returning the car to her and… read more

How do I acccess my otifications?

How do I acccess my otifications?

I see I have 16 unread notifications and I don't know where they are. How do I access them or they just scattered all over? I am becoming disenchanted with this site and its seemingly disorganization.

I am having the same issues, my email notifications have been more helpful in knowing who has sent me a notification and request to be on my "TEAM".
