My mother has Dementia and my dad was diagnosed with Alzheimer's last summer. Is there a way to find out if I have early stage Dementia/Alzheimer's?
When my mother-in-law was diagnosed with Alzheimers we were told by someone that it passes from mother to daughter and father to son. Not sure that is true as out of 2 girls in her family and 4 boys, both girls and 2 of the boys ended up with it.
I was diagnosed last July for Alzheiemers. I am still doing everything everyone else does I just accepted the disease and I work with it instead of against it!
If you are concerned contact a neuropsychologist in your area and they can test you for Alzheimer's/dementia.
I was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's last spring. Since the diagnosis I do what ever other people do in normal life! I am not a person who puts their head in the sand and ignores the diagnosis. I continue to do what others do, grocery shop, go to a movie, read a book etc.
