A complete failure. This is how you can expect to feel as you watch your loved one sliding below their incoming tide of confusion.
Alzheimer's is probably worse to watch than it is to suffer. If it were a physical affliction, like a broken leg or a heart attack, it would be easier to accept and understand. But it is a sneaky silent thief that intangibly dissolves the mind.
Alzheimer's Timeline is an accurate chronicle of 11 years steady decline, from the first noticeable symptoms of confusion, through to total mental and physical immobility.
-An honest and candid narrative of how Alzheimer's can affect the sufferer and the family.
-Written in the simple language of a layman.
-Accurately identifying each stage of regression by date.
-Offering you wisdom of hindsight, so that you can avoid making the same mistakes as the author.
Prepare yourself and your family practically and emotionally.
Understand the potential frustrations of the family and caregivers. Realise the importance of planning ahead. Avoid the many, many mistakes of the author that are described in embarrassing detail.
From the hard earned hindsight of the author, learn to make the prudent preparations that will guarantee the most appropriate care for your loved one throughout each regressive stage of Alzheimer's disease.
