In Response to Re: "FIVEFINGER DISCOUNT"; WHATDO YOU THINK?:
In Response to Re: "FIVEFINGER DISCOUNT"; WHATDO YOU THINK? : Nikki, Oh my!!! I had never thought of that.....my husband is in the early stages of Alzheimer's. I will certainly keep the frisking in mind for future use. Right now, he doesn't go in the store with me.....he enjoys to just sit and "people watch". I'm not sure what all I should be looking for as his condition progresses. It must be very hard on the spouse. My sister-in-law has Alzheimer's....very advanced.....but my brother has never clued me in on what to expect. He lives in CA, so we just talk via the internet and of course, the telephone. He is so good to his wife. I hope I can be the same when my time comes. Thanks for the info that you mentioned.

Darla, I hope you are involved in a support group. It does help. When I started attending my thought was..well I have it easy my husband is not that advanced...well it does not take long to go from mild to moderate to advanced.
The groups do help if for no other reason than to let you know you are not alone and there is help. If you ever need to talk or "vent" send me a message through VBB and we can exchange emails if you would like.
It does help if you can talk to someone that is in the same situation not someone that has a friend or neighbor or grandparent or some other non resident person. Life does change when you are living day to day with someone with Alzheimer's.
