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.
