I've already posted this in the tearoom but as a new member I'm not sure if I should post it here as well: Hi I've just found this site tonight and I have been moved by many of the messages I have read. My husband is 73 this year and I am 52. The age difference has never mattered. We will have been married 25 years this year. If you look at him he looks not much older than I do! He was diagnosed with Alzheimer's 2 years ago and is taking Aricept. Although we have had some rough times we are getting on remarkably well. We seem to be lucky in that he is responding well to the medication and still does almost everything he used to do (he just doesn't know the date, day or year!!) We really try to be positve about this and I know the future will not be good but we are living every day to the full and we will take things as they come. I look forward to using this site to help and support me over the coming years.
