Hi there, I was at university when my mum was diagnosed with young-onset Alzheimer's at age 56. It took me a few months to go to anyone at the university with this, but they were very encouraging about writing about my mum's illness. At the time, I wasn't ready, but I have developed a passion for volunteering, fundraising and raising awareness so I have started writing this blog. I hope to grow this blog and would love to hear your thoughts and criticisms: Do you find this helpful as people who are experiencing something similar? Do you think this contains anything helpful for people who have never experienced something like this? Is there anything it's missing? Is there anything it should/could contain? Feel free to use the "contact" section to get me directly, or comment here if you prefer. mymumcaroline.wordpress.com Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
