*takes a deep breath* After attending the 1st night of a Caring and Coping with Dementia course yesterday I was left feeling alone and needing to talk to others caring for a younger person. My husband is 54, and we have 2 boys of 9 & 7. He was diagnosed with Alzheimers last August and I don't think we have really come to terms with it. Looking back there have been signs over the last 4 years or so. These had a detremental affect on our relationship before we got the diagnosis. He is still in the early stages and is on medication. Some days are easier than other both for him and for me. I try to keep everything as normal as possible for the boys and we are very open with all our family and friends which has mede things easier for John. There seems to very little support for younger suffers.
