The Story So Far

  • I'm a writer, photographer, consultant. Age 51. My father was a reporter and editor. Then he became something other than that. He died February 8, 2010 at 87. He was widowed in 2003. His decline started a little earlier. His sister died of Alzheimer's.

Alan, I appreciate your writing about your dad in this blog. My mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's four years ago, and I am still struggling to keep my own life while doing everything I can to give her a "soft landing".

Also thank you for commenting in the Alzheimer's Association Caregiver Forum to my post "Help With Repetitive Questions".

More of the story is that I actually invented the recorder that I described. I had never done anything like that before - I am an attorney-turned-mediator, not an inventor. But, I was motivated by my mother's anxiety and confusion to do something to help.

Jeanette -

I appreciate your comments, but not the back-door commercial for your device. Unfortunately I'm not willing to carry ads or endorsements for products that I haven't had a chance to examine or investigate. Therefore I've edited your comment to remove the URL and all references to the product name.

I'd be glad to look at it in more detail. I'll send you an e-mail so that we can continue the conversation offline.

Again, thanks for stopping by.
