My mother has had all the classic Alzheimer's symptoms for the last 5 years. My father has been in denial and would not get her tested or make accommodations. He was just sure if she would be more active she would "remember" more. The family doctor could tell and put her on namenda
(don't know if I spelled it right). I think that has slowed her progress. how
ever, she has become increasingly distant, inactive, and was actually hospitalized in Feb.
