I have a 65 year old aunt who's been diagnosed with dementia.She's still pretty much independent and she spends a great deal of time alone, as she resides by herself. She has 1 son who is married and just recently had his 2nd child. I'm her only niece and I reside in VA and they live in MD. She is still mobile but I see a decline. She's not at a point where she needs a nursing home, but she definitely needs some help. It's hard to have this convo with her son about certain decisions regarding his mother. He doesn't know what to do and neither do I, which brings me to this forum.
