My wife of 57 years has had Alzheimer for four years. So far and I hope forever I will be able to take care of her forever at home. I couldn't imagine waking up in the morning without her by my side. She still smiles and laughs and tells me when we go to bed, how much she loves me. A few months ago, she wondered from our house and had a bad fall. I have taken precausions so that will not happen again. A loud alarm on the door that sounds when it is open, I have someone come in daily for a few hours so I can go on errands. I have heart problems but manage.
