I thought that I would just say hello to everyone. My father in law has been diagnosed with Alzheimers and I found this site in the hope of helping him in some way. I really am at at loss as to where I go from here, I am desperate to help him and to find someway of triggering memories for him. He has always been an active, clever man and to see the look of confusion on his face is killing me. My mother in law is struggling to come to terms with him and to cope with the fact that the man she relied on so much through the years is becoming a stranger. We are trying to keep a sense of humour but it's becoming harder and harder. I really do not know where to go from here. I am sorry if I sound so gloomy but at the moment everything is just so strange and frightening.
