My mum was diagnosed with early onset alzheimers at 57 yrs old. She is now 66 and in late stage of the illness. It's been a difficult struggle for all of us but we try and manage with a great team of carers at home. My dad called paramedics today as he could not wake my mum for her tea, head and neck had gone floppy. Upon instruction over the phone he lowered my mums bed down so she was flat. She regained consciousness. Does anyone know what happened here as obviously pretty frightening for us.
