    My husband is fifty three years old and has had Alzheimer’s since he was fifty.
    In October he had to leave his job because of his memory. We have been married for thirty four years. He is and will always be the love of my life.yes, its safe to say he is my best friend. I don’t want to even think of my life without him in it. He may not always know me but, I know him. His favorite sayings is “I’m just here to be a blessing” That he is.

    I would rather be blunt and say that this is a major issue, and if your Grannie has etidnema or Alzheimers she will suffer a progressive decline and it will get worse. Firstly, I would recommend you take a current picture of her in case she does wander off. Next, I would meet with her family physician and see if you can have her referred to a psycho-geriatric resource person so they can assess her memory and mental functioning. It’s always good to document the times when your Granny’s behavior occurs and see if it happens at the same time of day because she could be suffering from a condition that is called sundowning . In the United States and Canada you can place a call to the Alzheimer’s society and see if they can help you. They are probably your best resource. Hope this helps.

    I can truly admire couples that stick it out and have support for their spouses.
