    Hi
    I have just joined today after learning that my father has Alzehimer's. The symptoms have been happening for quite some time but the diagnosis has just been given and I feel as if i have been hit by a sledgehammer!
    how did other members feel?

    Hi martrobdave, welcome to TP.

    You've come to the right place to find people who will help you as you come to terms with your dad's diagnosis. There's a lot of advice and support, so if you've any questions, fire away.

    If you need information, there are some excellent factsheets on the AS website.

    All the best,

    Hello Mart. :)
    I felt shocked, but at least had a label for a condition, however serious, and knew it was not our marriage that was on the rocks.
    I had experience of dementia with my mother, so thought I knew what to expect. I couldn`t have been more wrong as I had no idea there were so many forms of dementia which had so many different effects.
    I hope you get the support you need from Talking Point [TP] and from the services.
