@debbraw Yes. DO have great support group. Once a month. Counselling therapy has been great. I am experiencing anxiety and depression. PRAYER and my church are another support. I'll pray for all of you.

@debraw706 I also attended in Mi. Very informative. Best part was that everyone shared their experiences. And the stages explained a lot. My husband is in a facility…hardest thing ever done. Still have doubts he should be there. Our daughters were worried about my health having him home. Alzheimer and Aphasia are his diag. I'm all alone. Going through counseling…seems helpful. Highly recommend the workshop.

Thank you for sharing. What involved his initial fall? Did he trip? Dizziness? Was it 1st time? I really hope he agres soon to go to the doctor. Perhaps other family members could help talk with him and encourage him before he further compromises his health. Good luck.

Oh no. You need to reach out. To someone. Hospice for one. They helped me when my husband started falling. Asking for help is the 1st good step to taking care…of you. I would love to hear your story. I am sure we all can listen and share our experiences and help to get through this journey. We are here for you.

Hello all. Just reread past posts. Thank you all. Husb doing a bit better..settling in I credit the Ativan he is taking and they actually give to him earlier in afternoon for what I think is Sundown syndrom. It was my suggestion. It helps with the anxiety that overcomes him like clockwork late afternoon.I hope you all have been coming well through your journeys. It's still a struggle. Talk therapy and Skill class helping as well but these 2 wkly appts. add to my long "to do lists". Having spiraling down episodes so I am told to continue…

@julesa Bless your heart. Thanks ever so for sharing. I was embarrassed to share that, but your reply truly makes me feel that I am not alone. It's a journey. Need to remind myself often. God is in charge. He has a plan, we just need to trust Him.

@hopeful33250 …Thank you for your kind words. Did try speech therapy when in early stage, but to no avail. He tried so hard but the therapist thought it was too stressful for him. And he is worse as I have said. Also has what doc called essential tremor which has also gotten worse and his balance is off. Needs assistance but hates to be followed he can still walk after getting help up from chair.
