My Story:
In early 2011 my dad was diagnosed with moderate Alzheimer's Disease. I had to take over his life and move him into a assisted living facility. He was in a total of three assisted living facilities until I had to have him put into a VA nursing home in May of 2013. I made sure he got the best care possible and the VA did take excellent care of him.

My dad paased away on December 10, 2014 at about 2:50 am. He was a decorated Korean Conflict veteran with severe PTSD which led to the AD. He is now out of pain and in a much better place.

This community has been a great comfort to me as I have been able to share with others the struggles of caring for a parent with Alzheimer's.
