My mum is 59 and she was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's disease about 4 years ago. I am finding it increasingly difficult to cope now that she is deteriorating significantly week by week. I am finding it really helpful writing about my feelings in the form of a blog at www.mathschick.wordpress.com and I am sure many of you would be able to relate to. I was wondering how easy or difficult any of you have found it to get care on the NHS for someone with early onset, under the age of 60. This seems to be a sticking point for us right now and it seems very discriminatory. All the details are on my blog. It would be really nice to hear from anyone with a similar experience and how you managed to get help in the end because at the moment we feel so isolated.
