I don't think anyone with alzheimers disease should live completely alone.it is a devastating degenerative illness and at least one person,if not more should be in very close proximity to the afflicted person.my mom has never lived alone and her battle has still been incredibily difficult and complex,even with my father and I living with her and helping her through all of it.it is important for the person with the disease to have a good,strong,trustworthy supportive group of people in their life to help them every step of the wretched illness.it is my personal mission to make sure my mom continues to have her life,as she did before she got sick-with respect,dignity and the honor she deserves.my mother is and always was a kind and wonderful human being and deserves to be treated as such.my hope for everyone else with the disease is the same-that someone who loves them would make sure they continue life with dignity,honor and their self-respect...as always thankyou and please continue to support funding for research so that a new and better medicine and or cure can come to fruition.thanks godspeed progress amen from carla danesi gloria's daughter "remember gloria,gloria lives"

Why is it taking so long to find a cure for Alzheimer's Disease? It's frustrating when a loved one suffers from this disease, yet physically, they are 100% healthy! I believe an imbalance of metals in the brain has a lot to do with Alzheimer's Disease! Celylon Cinnamon, Turmeric Curcumin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Folic Acid, N-Acetyl Cysteine, Alpha Lipoic Acid and Huperzine A taking on a daily basis can help prevent you from ever getting Alzheimer's Disease! This is what the pharmaceutical companies don't want you to know because they can't patent these products!

Make sure to never eat seafood because of the high levels of Mercury, never get Mercury fillings nor root canals in your mouth and at all costs refrain from getting vacinations of any type! Vacinations have Mercury levels off the chart!

if i ever get alzheimers, i would choose to cure it with 'a bullet'. in other words, i would FAR prefer death over 'living' with this disease.

It's not about sending them away, it's all about finding a place where proper care can be given to them.My garndfather is a patient of Alzheimer. It was a tough decision to let AL take care of him but i knew it was the best for him and family.He is now at Luvida Care Solutions Belton, TX which is an AL only for Alzheimer's patients. It feels good seeing him doing better there.
