that is so young. sometimes stress can speed these conditions up or a fall. you are so young too and this is a lot to deal with. can he live independently? my mother has memory issues and i found that movie benjamin button put it into perspective for me. another movie is my big fat greek wedding. both show a great acceptance of the condition and that this is now the reality. once it’s accepted, compassion and love are the only tools one needs. it’s amazing how this can, believe it or not, allow you to release a lot of warmth that was once hidden. such are the joys of caregiving.
