This is about my mother, Thelma, and the killer called Alzheimer's. My mother has end stage ALZHEIMER'S. None of the medication helped her. She remains at home with her handicapped husband due to medicaid denying her medical insurance which would pay for her to go to a nursing home. This is a family in crisis. I hope this can help someone.

Over 6 years ago my best friend and lover, my husband Donald, was diagnosed with dementia. It began with him not being able to remember how to manage a program as a engineer. This man holds a BS in engineering and MS in computer Science. He has managed projects for such companies as Boeing Commercial Aircraft company, in the Aerospace industry and finally in a small company close to his home. I begin to notice he forgot to turn off the stove, placing items in placese where they shouldn't be. He also began to forget to do simple things like lock the door.
