Hello Tender Face
I do understand your sceptisisum, sort of. The A S have been doing treks long before comic releif, most of the treks I have been on have raised close to £100,000 there is no way that people would donate to that extent without the glamour and in some cases danger of the...
I did the wall May 2009. It was amazing but hard, make sure that you do the training.
Raising the money is hard but I tend to break it down into months if I have not raised that months money I make it up myself, that way it is managable for me but I start one year before so it is...
My husband is 59 and in March he went into full time care.
I would like some where for him to be that is safe and actually caters for his needs the home he is in is specifically for people with challenging behaviour but they cannot cope with him and are talking of turning him out...
I'm not medical but when my husband was first diagnosed he went for genetic tests, as i understand it AD is unlikely to be genetic but the younger the person the more likely it is. His tests were all negative so if his is genetic then it is one they haven't found yet. He was 51 when diagnosed...
Aricept did not suit my husband at all, when he came off it his scors inproved quite a bit. These drugs are great but not for all, it is important to know that you have tried everything you can.
Thanks again, I am feeling a bit better today. I have got a job interveiw next Tuesday with Crossroads. If I get it I will be sitting with children so it won't remind me of my husband all the time and I can keep doing the crossing patrole, which I love.
I haven’t posted for a long time, bad time.
I no longer care for my husband he got to violent with me it was not safe.

The last time that Fred went for respite we took his portable TV as usual, when we arrived they told us that he could not keep his TV as he did not have a licence for that room it has to be specific to him and the room, Fred goes to the home for respite every two months for one...
Hello everyone, we got a wet room as well but down stairs, we had to pay a little towards the cost but not a lot, it will be available when Fred has to move down stairs, if that happens. It took at least 12 months to get it.
Good for you it’s nice to hear that you want to help raise awareness. If you contact your local AS office I am sure they will be delighted to have you help.
I helped man a stall in a shopping centre yesterday, my husband was at his day centre, mostly you stand and smile at passers...
I just wanted to say hello and welcome to TP. I live near Nottingham.
We haven’t got to the nursing home stage yet so all I can say is follow the advice that the others have posted.
My husband goes to respite for one week at a time but they cannot cope with nursing it is a...
I often feel despair, I have no idea what to do about it either but I feel much less alone when I visit TP. My whole life has been taken over with this horrible disease all that we had planed for the future has gone. It is best to take life one day at a time.
You are not selfish at...
