I'm looking for folks with younger onset early stage Alzheimer's in my south NJ Ocean County area who might be interested in attending a support group run by the Alzheimer's Association Greater NJ Chapter. We have a location in Bayville NJ we'll use. We're looking for facilitators now but we're also looking for attendees once we're up and running.
Contact me if you're interested.
Susan, I know this can be a difficult thing to speak to your husband about. the Alzheimer's Association has a good brochure on this issue.
There don't seem to be a lot of people on this site supporting someone with frontal lobe dementia. Am I right?
I see people talking about stages of alzheimer's, but cannot get a clear answer..I have googled stages of alzheimer's but it is not terribly clear..thanks
My husband was diagnosed in May 2018 with early onset Alzheimer's dementia, and in 2020 developed a seizure disorder, resulting in a spinal fracture. He is currently walking with a shuffling gait and some balance issues, but has not resumed use of the walker after recovering from the spinal fracture. He is fully incontinent and nearly non-verbal, and requires 24/7 care and assistance with all ADL's. I am trying to figure out if I need to purchase a vehicle that is equipped for a wheelchair.
Thank you for sharing your experienced insight. I am an eternal optimist and a preparer...there is so little we can ACTUALLY do to direct the course of our lives in this role...
Hub’s doctor finally agrees that he needs to see a neurologist for a MRI. He is resisting any exam or meds. Doctor wants to rule out several possibilities… basically FTL, early onset ALZ or tumor. So close to a dx and yet so far. Any advice from those who have been there?
