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.

I used to be a high functioning person as a transactional real estate attorney. Now I can't work, in fact I was fired from my last two jobs. I started working at age 13 as a grunt maintenance man in a private park. My whole life has revolved around work and education. I even worked full time and went to law school at night. Up until about 4 years ago I was still working, but I got fired twice from my last two jobs, got diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's and now I can't work. I'm now 65 but I was probably 58 +/- when it started.
