For over twenty five years, my dad was an airline pilot and traveled the world. On his days off he also worked at Disneyland and Disney World singing with the barbershop quartet called the Dapper Dans. He loved both jobs and was the epitome of health. He was a brilliant man who loved life and enjoyed the outdoors and spending time with his friends and family.

I've been caring for my mother as she has slipped down into AD for about seven years.  We've overcome so many challanges together that I became empassioned to share any help or ideas with others who are not so far along as we are.  My son and I made a brief video to help guide people to my blog and facebook page.  I found it appalling that there was such a lack of help and network in my geographical area.  However, things are much improved and I have made it my mission to continue to get the word out about all things dementia in our community.

I am the sole family caregiver for my 94-year old mother who has lived with Alzheimer's disease for over five years. At this point, her disease is mid-stage and is characterized by memory loss, confusion, high anxiety repetitive statements and questioning, and declining verbal skills. At times, she does not recognize me. She is no longer unable to perform activities of daily living such as dressing herself, bathing, preparing meals, and doing housework. She requires 24-hour care which I pay for.
