To all those who are here for help, advice, comfort, support, and/or
friendship, you have come to the right place.
This is a support for caregivers NG. Some come seeking advice. Some, a
sympathetic ear. Some seek the latest in research and medications.
There are people here who have experience in caring for a loved one with
Alzheimer's Disease or other dementias. We will be glad to talk to you and
help whenever we can. Just post your message and one of us will respond.
Don't be put off by the lack of posts, the presence of spam, or posts about
viruses, the implication of an overabundance of a metal, or other such
theories of what causes AD and other dementias.
Why is this NG fairly quiet? It's just most of us regulars are either too
busy with active caregiving, or have had our loved one pass so long ago that
the need to connect is no longer as strong. And the expansion of the World
Wide Web means there are all sorts of areas to chat with people and get
help; Usenet is no longer the only option.
But we stalwarts are lurking and always willing to speak up and give some
ideas when we can.
Glad you are here but sorry you have the need...
