Dealing with someone with severe Alzheimer’s on a daily basis is a hard pill to swallow. I’ve been the primary caregiver for my mother for the past 5 years and it hasn’t gotten any easier. I feel that spiritually God has allowed me to pull strength from him and knowledge from reading and becoming aware. If Alzheimers run in your family… yes even at the tender age of 35, I highly suggest you begin partaking in memory screening activities. I have added information about Memory Screening programs that begin here shortly in January of 2019. Feel free to comment, share or just embark on this wealth of information that I wish to pass on.
