I noticed alot of care givers on this site have experience with dementia. Could someone explain in more detail to me how this is going to be? She is only 60,and at this point she has light memory issues, and reasoning, and sometimes making rational decisions. Well after some of the things I've read I am kinda scared. Is mom going to totally forget who I am one day? I hope not. I'm the same one on here last week that was all ready to place her in AL. Yes, after two years of ALOT of stress it has crossed my mind, but she raised me, and I know how against going she is, so I'm putting it off until it may become medically necessary. I just relize I need to become more informed of what to expect in future. Any comments or advice are welcomed. Thanks guys!!
