My father passed away at the age of 88 last January. How do I change my profile to reflect that he passed away?
My life - and the life of our 16 year old daughter - is continually bouncing from one disaster after another as a result of my husband’s mid-stage Alzheimer’s. He cannot realize that his capabilities are not those of who he used to be or even those of a normal person. So he has extremely poor judgement which leads to bad things happening. In November, he was the cause of an incident that led to thousands of dollars in damage to our home (still in the process of being fixed). Last Thursday, he… read more
Many articles discuss short term memory loss but nothing about long term memory loss. My mother does not recall any memories. It's not only surprising but very difficult to converse with her about any subjects since her sort term memory is poor and she has no recall of memories from the past
I show her recent photo's of her great grand children which she loves to see and she seems happy and says how cute they are. We have tried looking at old photo's and she asks who these people are including… read more

Yes, I suggest just sending him the link in an email to invite him. Then he can learn more here: https://www.myalzteam.com/resources/getting-sta...
My husband and I both have older iphones. Since he's become less cognitively able, he has started receiving numerous spam calls, but mostly emails. They are all for 'freebies and 'awards' or money, packages to pick up....I don't want to take the phone away, because he has gotten misplaced and needed to call me. Has anyone used spam blockers, or some kind of simplified phone format? I'm contacting our carrier to see if they can do anything. What I've seen online and on apps. is a… read more
A dear friend of mine told me I am not the first nor the last to go through this disease and I would survive. While that is true, it is not helping get thru the grief. I am basically by myself and just terribly sad.
He wants likes and even controversy. He would be very angry if we take it away, his only daily social activity.
My husbands family who only sees him about 3 or 4 times a year, can’t tell there is anything wrong him. Sometimes I think they doubt his diagnosis and what I tell them. He is on medication, still takes care of all his personal needs, drives in our very small town, and does most everything he used to do. He can carry on a conversation without most people noticing anything unusual. Yet at home with our immediate family, we see small things daily. He looses his phone, wallet, sunglasses all the… read more
If I do not catch her in time she does it anywhere. Please help. She wears a diaper as an emergency measure, but still insists on using the loo wherever that might be. If I catch her in time, I guide her to the toilet, otherwise it happens just anywhere.
My alz family member is confused badly most of the time and gets upset if you try to tell them the actual truth. I usually go along with him to keep him settled down, but a few family members think I should try and set him straight and make him understand things even when he gets angry and upset. Need some answers. Thank you!!
