Hi Eclair, you have every right to be angry. Life is so cruel to someone as young as your Mum.
You can only try to take every chance to do the ordinary things whilst qulity is still there. You do not say if Mum is on any medication, such as Aricept or Exelon. I know they are not the answere for everyone, but I do feel that it has helped in Lionels case, to moderate the rate of descent inot the illness. It is only when I look back I realise how he is now (Does that make sense)
Continue posting, and let us know how Mum is doing from time to time, or come at us if you hit any particular problems.
Take care, Connie
