An alzheimers or dementia patient can remain in their home but it takes hard work,dedication and organization and compassion from competent caregivers that are willing and able to care for them to enable them to do so.There are programs and services out there to assist caregivers but in most cases,caregivers must seek them out.As the old saying goes,where there's a will,there's a way.Godspeed new and better medicine for this wretched disease-mom,I love you always and am proud of how well you're doing.I'm keeping my promise.Thankyou Carla Danesi Glorias Daughter "Remember Gloria,Gloria Lives"
