I orginally joined a few months ago but as it does, life got in the way and I havnt logged on for several months. Now, ironically, I can`t remember my log in details! So a quick introduction, my name is Lisa and I care for my mother in law who is probablly in the early stages of alzheimers disease. Though since I originally joined, I can see a marked deterioration in her condition and each new week seems to bring a new issue. My husband is one of 6 children and until recently, we were the only ones caring for the mother in law but after a bit of a blip for all concerned a few weeks ago, we approached his sister for help, and fortunately for us, she has stepped up to the plate and is now fully on board with us. I cannot tell you the pressure that takes of. Hopefully I`ll be around much more as this awful illness is now getting much worse for my mother in law so I guess I`ll be needing the support of this place even more.
