    Does anyone in your family have Alzheimer's?

    If so, what is their relation to you?

    My Aunt!  She was diagnosed in her seventies.  It started with severe paranoia, she thought the neighbor across the street was trying to terrorize her.  It progressed slowly into dementia, she ultimately found herself in an assisted living center when she could no longer remember if she had eaten or taken her insulin.  It's a horribly debilitating disease!

    A disease which is extremely horrible. My mother suffered due to this disease for six years and now she is no more. I and the rest of the family were forced to see her ill condition without being able to arrange a convincing treatment. It was a dreaded experience.

    My grandfather. Though I feel it is connected to the bomb fragments stuck in his head as well. He is 93 and doesn't remember the past few years sometimes.

    I was reading a hub about memories that inspired this question.  My great Aunt has Alzheimers, she is 93.  Her mind is gone but her body is fine; but her sister, my Grandmother, 91, is the opposite - Her mind is fine but everything on her body is going.

    My grandmother have had the disease since 2001. Eleven years of this progressive and debilitating disease. She is 85, and in perfect health. I take care of her full time, believe me , is a daily struggle for both of us. She is a very independent woman, and the fact that someone else serves her, clean and almost do everything for her is frustrating for her. I don't mind at all, but it breaks my heart to see her reaction when she cant remember where she is,or cant remember if she ate or not.

    In her few moments of clarity, she come to me crying, maybe afraid that I might not be there for her someday. Now I am the adult, while she became the child. She is living in my home with my husband and our kids. We cant help feeling sorry for her condition. Trying always to distract her, so she wont feel as a burden. She is not used to depend on others. I am one of the few people that she recognizes, and am scared to death of the day that she cant. Take care.

    It is a terrible thing to be plagued with Alzheimer. My parents passed away at the age of 80 plus without Alzheimer. I do believe it is sort of relating to food we eat and the environment we are exposed to.
