Understanding Alzheimers Disease

By: nkthen
There is a disease out there that scares a lot young people in today's world. They start to worried about whether their parents are going to end up one of the elders that are wondering out in the streets not knowing where they are. Who they are or even where they live. You know it's a scary thought but it happens.

More elders and their family are finding out that they have the Alzheimer Disease and it does put fear into their children and grandchildren. Really how would you feel if you go to visit your parents or grandparents one day and they had no idea who you are?

First couple of visits you could get them to remember who you are but you noticed that as the months or years went on it just continued to get worse. Then that dreadful day came that no matter just how much you tried to explain who you are they just could not remember.

But you noticed that they could remember events that happened before you were born and luckily they did tell you about a few of them before so you had an idea of what they are talking about.

By the time that this happens you start to feel helpless and just try to talk to anyone including friend, family, and doctors plus you even take time to look up information that would help you make a good choice for your parents or grandparents. All of this would make you start to wonder if they are going to be all right there at their house by their self.

The first step you might take is to get some help in there for them but if that does not work then what would you have left to do? Maybe move in yourself or would you have to send them to a home that is equipped to take care of elders with Alzheimer Disease.

That is one decision that not very many young adults are ready and willing to take because all they want is what is best for their parents and it would be a hard decision to make.
