    Hello - it's Our Kid here.
    Just wanted to introduce myself. I have two sisters and our lovely Mum who has lived alone for 10 years has just been diagnosed with Early Alzheimers. She has deteriorated from being her normal self to having virtually no short term memory in the space of five months.
    It has been an uphill struggle for us to keep abreast of things but she now has carers and her meds sorted etc etc but the hardest thing is that me and my sisters live a long way from her, all with full time jobs, and cannot be there for her in her hour of need.
    We are there every weekend but she is increasingly isolated and lonely.
    :(

    Hi our kid

    I only joined last week and find it really helpful . I am a carer to my OH but if is good to know you are not alone and even if you need a rant or get something of your chest it makes you feel better.

    What may be unique to you , you find that there are others our there going thru exactly the same. Ir does you good to talk . Take care.
