Will all respect due, I have noticed differences in intensity when I hear family members speak about alzheimer’s in their family.
This probably goes without saying, but I think it is worth noting. The family member that is actually doing the 24 hour a day, 7 day a week caregiving, sounds very different than the family member that comes by and helps on occasion. Also the longer, in years, the caregiving goes on, the more intense and emotional the tone is.
It takes a great deal of money to have someone take care of a loved one. Some folks do not have the resources. What is amazing about this, is that even wealthy people are finding themselves running short of money trying to take care of a loved one. The culprit may be the time between diagnosis and death. Folks with Alzheimer’s disease may live a long time.
