Absolutely! I've been through this several times with friends….and now my husband is showing signs at 77….
After a while one accepts the fact that not everyone can cope with the decline of loved ones, and if we're the only one left, the burden falls upon us. It IS a form of heroism and we should embrace it as such, rather than just feeling sorry for ourselves. I like to think that faith and Karma will come into play. But that's been my way of coping….
Just pray there is someone as responsible if we ourselves should finally need help! I like to think that, having been through this with others, our minds have been kept active by caring for others, and hence be a bit sharper in order to face, acknowledge, and be aware of our own problems should they occur.
Just be sure to have an advanced directive in place should we also succumb…. It will be infinately kinder to those we leave behind!

This site was inspired by my Mom’s autoimmune dementia.

It is a place where we separate out the wheat from the chafe, the important articles & videos from each week’s river of news. Google gets a new post on Alzheimer’s or dementia every 7 minutes. That can overwhelm anyone looking for help. This site filters out, focuses on and offers only the best information. it has helped hundreds of thousands of people since it debuted in 2007. Thanks to our many subscribers for your supportive feedback.

The site is dedicated to all those preserving the dignity of the community of people living with dementia.
