  1. Great list of resources. I have heard about some of the new guidelines concerning Alzheimer’s but not been able to find the time to read more into it. Thanks for the link. I will have to read it later, as it runs in my family.
  2. Thanks for another interesting blog carnival for those of us caring for elderly parents. This was especially interesting to me because of the article on Parkinsons Disease and care facilities for those who symptoms are progressing. My senior dad did fine at home until he reached the end stage of his Parkinsons Disease. For a few weeks we were concerned he would have to be moved into a care facility due to much worse dementia symptoms. We were so grateful when the hospice team was able to find a better combination of medications. His demeanor returned to normal and he was able to stay home until he passed away. But I could certainly appreciate the interesting article. Thank you.
