This disease is so cruel, especially early onset! I am so sorry it has happened to your wife. Do you have her powers of attorney? Is there a second in line should something happen to you? There is no need to rush into this, but planning is very wise. Your wife may be able to live at home if there are resources and help and as her needs increase it will become a 24/7 job for someone if she stays at home which would be quite expensive. It may become necessary to place her in a facility even if nothing happens to you. As the disease progresses some of her behaviors may become very difficult for you to manage alone. You should see an elder law attorney to assist with the planning. And there is Medicaid planning that should be done to insure that you will have the resources that you will need while providing for her.
