Sharecare put a link to this page on their website so you might have come over from there.

I am now spending most of my time as Founder and Editor of the Alzheimer's Reading Room (ARR). You may want to jump over there for information about Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia.

We have over 3,500 articles on Alzheimer's in the knowledge base on the ARR. Look for the search box on the right hand side of every page to find the best information currently available on the Internet.

If you are having problems with Alzheimer's patients we have lots of advice and potential solutions  to those problems.

We also have an active community of commentors that are very helpful.

I Cured My Neighbors' Alzheimer's

Today I learned an important lesson. But first, let me tell you how I cured a neighbor of Alzheimer's.

Cure Alzheimer's dementia
Oh happy day. I just learned for the first time ever that someone in the Pines Of Delray finally listened to me.

You see, I live in a community where there are a lot of people over 80 years old. Simple statistics tell me that one in every three will suffer from dementia. If they live long enough, one in every two.

Those are the odds.

For some reason when a person starts showing signs of dementia here, and I suggest they get a full blown evaluation and full blown testing for dementia, my suggestion falls on deaf ears.

Denial and fear are rampant. I understand.

Learning How to Communicate with Someone Suffering From Alzheimer's Disease

The Metamorphosis of This Alzheimer's Caregiver

First, we would go out in the world and resume living our life the way we had before the diagnosis. Second, I would find a new way to communicate with my mother. Third, I would identify each problem that comes with the disease and tackle it head on...
To start, I am a curious person. So, when I want to know more about something I really dig in. Take it apart and put it back together.

I'm fortunate in two ways. I picked great parents, and God and my parents blessed me with an ability to read fast, and absorb information.

My brain is wired to view everything as a system. This allows me to see all the parts when I encounter something new, or when I am trying to figure things out.
