The Alzheimer’s Umbrella!
The website for Dementia Disease and Memory Loss Support. Topics, Tips & Advice with help for everyone.
Being a Registered Nurse I have been confronted with problems associated with ageing and trying to cope with modern day lifestyles.
My mother was a Royal Naval nurse back in the 1950’s. She was fit and healthy until the age of 79 yrs when she crashed her car for no apparent reason – into the Garage Door! At the time it was unfathomable to understand why a lady who was always very smart, quick minded and intelligent should have this happen to her !
Little did we know that within 6 months she would be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s / Vascular Dementia Disease and she herself would be in a state of shock – as she was still suffering only small memory lapses.
Sadly her health declined over the next 6 years until she was bed bound ( End / Final Stage) and unable to feed herself. (As she is now)
