My sister has recently been diagnosed with alzheimers, she is 35 and also has down's syndrome. I am finding it hard to come to terms with, I keep thinking that there has been a big mistake. Deep down I know that it is as they say. I am having nightmares. I am tearful and want to be able to do something. The prognosis is not good and we are expecting a rapid decline. I want to be able to learn more about the day to day reality of alzheimer in someone with downs. The handbook leaves alot of things unanswered. She is between early and mid stages. Any advise would be good.
