I have had a few friends who have cared for parents with Alzheimers and it is indeed brutal for all involved. My heart goes out to those who are faced with this challenge with their loved ones.
Alzheimers is another reason why I am a strong advocate for living trusts. It is one of those things that can happen to any of us. Having precautions in place can help provide help when we need it the most. Please see my book review on Living Trusts for Everyone by Ronald Sharp. Waiting until later can be too late for many.
