Hi all,

I have joined this forum as i am currently researching into early onset alzheimer's.

I would like to hear about the personal views and feelings of any one who has been diagnosed early on, or their carers.

I would be extremely grateful for any replies.

Thank you ever so much.

Hi Hummer

I believe it would be sensible for you to explain the basis of your research. Perhaps another post here explaining your circumstances, and why you have chosen early onset dementia, etc.....

Is the research being done purely from an objective standpoint - that is, are you involved in any way with a friend or relative who has dementia?

Is your research a personal thing, in which case, what is your objective?

Is the research academic, or related in any way to the NHS, or.......?

Sorry for the Spanish Inquisition, but I don't feel comfortable with your asking for personal views of the TP membership, without your having explained in some detail why, and what you intend to do with it.
