My beautiful wife of 54 years started with Alzheimer's disease 7 years ago and now is unable to do anything for herself and must be cared for 24/7. Sad thing is we have 8 beautiful grandchildren and she is unable to know them or her 4 children and will ask me where her husband is. We, all of the country, must understand this disease and help in any way they can, with contributions, or just help your neighbors.

My mother, Lillie, began showing signs of memory loss in 2008. In November of 2008 she received a pacemaker. For several months after receiving the pacemaker her memory was fine. About June of 2009, I began to notice that my mother's memory was on the decline again. I became so depressed I sought therapy. I was seeing three counselors. One was a Psychiatrist, the other a MFCC, and a Christian therapist at my church. The MFCC suggested that I join a support group for Alzheimer's caregivers.
