"i will light your darkness with confusion" ...

and that was exactly what it felt like, caring for my father with alzheimer's disease for over a year. as the disease progressed, everything fell into a darkness that was totally confused. if he understood me, he often didn't say so. if i asked him anything, he almost always replied that he didn't know. and, i have to say, the thing that threw me the most was that here i was trying to communicate with ...

How risky is the contracting of Alzheimer's Disease?

The Alzheimer's disease symptoms are frequently confused with the changes that occur in usual aging, so it is significant to know the difference. I have read in ‘nun study treatment’ in google recently that we must determine about Alzheimer's disease because this disease is actually not an ordinary part of aging.

How to properly gauge worsening of cognitive decline
