Yesterday I was told by my mum that a close friend's mother was recently diagnosed with AD -she's in her mid 50's. My friend doesn't like talking about personal issues. If I was to call her she would not tell me about her mum's illness but I feel I owe it to her to let her know I know and that I'm here to support her and help her in any way. I am at a loss as to how to approach her with this. Any suggestions? Should I wait for her to tell me in her own time?
