Thank you! We do not have a gerontologist but I am going to look for one. I never even thought about it!

Julie: First of all, glad you're here and so sorry that you're dealing w/Alzheimer's. It really takes a toll on the family.

Does your FIL have a gerontologist -- a specialist in dealing w/the elderly. That was my saving grace w/both my parents (Mom had Alz, Dad had dementia).

You definitely have to take care of yourself . . . the stress WILL impact your health otherwise!

Stay connected here.

Hugs and prayers.

Love is the root of all things good in life.

My name is Julie and I'm new to the team but not to SP. I'm married, have 3 kids, a granddaughter and a new grandbaby on the way. I was so thankful to have found this team and hope to learn more about alzheimer/dementia as we are dealing with this with my father-in-law. My biggest frustration is a doctor who seems to blow off what is going on but I haven't convinced FIL or husband that a new doctor is needed. FIL is also in Stage 4 prostate cancer so we are dealing with that also. I made a decision this week that I have to look out for my health also (not that I have any concerns YET).

So glad to be here!
