How does one deal with early onset alzheimers and a 16 year old son? Everyone talks of the 'elderly.' My husband/his father is only 65. He was diagnosed 3 years ago and his mental acuity is worsening. It would be nice to have a place to go to for active emotional support, but there is none for people in our age bracket and circumstances in my area. Perhaps I should look into setting one up as I find it hard to believe we are the only family fitting this description.
