My heart goes out to this dear woman. There is hope for people with Alzheimer's Disease. Not only are there medications but treatments which can actually reverse many of the effects of AD for many people. It is just not shared with enough people. Why not go for the hope? In the book The Dynamite Story of Alzheimer's Recoveries it tells how to make simple dietary changes, resulting in reversal of AD. While it may not be 100% for every patient, is it not worth a try?
