So glad you shared your introduction!! We vent believing it’s important to release. We’re a no-judgment zone.

Hi Ron–I just want to make sure I understand the question–the granddaughter has asked your friend to vacate the house, correct?
I think your friend should be prepared to move fairly quickly simply because I don’t think he has any other option, unfortunately. Sounds like the granddaughter wants to sell the house. Your friend could ask to stay until the house sells and continue to provide maintenance for the house. It’s really up to the granddaughter to set the move-out date. It would be nice if she worked with your buddy so that he’s okay (he provided an invaluable service to her grandmother) but the ex sounds ready to move.

Oh, Lillie, this is a picture that truly makes us all feel so much! When I see this picture, I also see how important you are to your mom. You make so much possible for her.
We were a day late last month because I forgot so I think it’s perfect you’re a day early this month.

Oh, MG, I’m not sure to laugh or cry reading this. I would imagine you’re not sure if you should cry or scream. Oh, that’s messy. Direct communication can be such a gift. It’s frustrating when you just can’t receive that gift. I’m thinking of you and hoping for a miracle.

Hi MG–@janshriver posted a review of “The 36-Hour Day” here: http://www.caregiving.com/forums/topic/the-36-hour-day-by-nancy-l-mace-peter-v-rabins/
My mom has a friend who was diagnosed about five ago. The husband kept the news in the immediate family until about two years ago. When he shared the diagnosis with my mom, he also shared articles from the Alzheimer’s Association (http://www.alz.org). I wonder if rather than a book, printing articles would be helpful for your dad?
Now that I’m thinking about this: My mom’s friend’s husband only shares information that will be helpful now. So, he initially shared tips on how to communicate with his wife. He just shared another update with my mom, that his wife needs help cutting food (my mom is bringing her to a luncheon) and is no longer able to initiate a conversation. It may be helpful to share information with your dad that will help him right now and then continue to share information as your mom’s need increase.
You also could check with your local chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association and ask them to send you brochures that would be helpful for your dad to read.

I love this photo, Jan. Your mom is safe to “be”–whether that be in the disease process or be asleep. I just love the photos that show the moment which ends us showing us so much more.
