Hi, i am new to this site and have only just registered. I have registered because my mum has early onset Alzheimer's disease as does my auntie. My mum is 49 years old and has been in a nursing home for almost a year now. Me, my sister and my step dad were no longer able to cope. We think that my mum has had Alzheimer's disease for several years and is now inthe late stages. My auntie, 45, has recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease too and my grandma died at the age of 64. Obviously me and my sister are worried that we will inherit the disease. I am doing a parachute jump in March to celebrate 25 years of the Alzheimer's society and raise money for it. I plan to raise as much awareness as possible as somany people are unaware of early onset dementia and the difference between this and normal dementia. I would be interested in hearing from anyone who is of a similar age or in a similar position to me.
