  •  my heart goes out to you, lefty (10+ / 0-)

    i just read some recent research about new findings about earlier intervention as well. I have lost an aunt and a grandmother to Alzheimer's, and currently have another Aunt whose alzheimer's is steadily advancing to the point where she is about to be sent up to the '2nd floor' .... right now, she has enough from her pension and savings to cover her having someone with her throughout the day to help her stay within the assisted living situation she has been in for 2 years. Last year, when I went back to NY to see her, she still remembered me and we went out shopping and I bought her shoes and pizza and all sorts of stuff in the $1 store, cause she refused to let me spend any significant $ on her.

    I had intended to visit this summer. Still hope to.

    Bless you and your family, lefty. It is such a tragic tragic loss.
