after losing my mom to dementia

My mom had Alzheimer’s- We had her tested by local dr that specializes in this area..

My Dad probably had a bit of it as well ( both in their 80s).

4 years After they both passed away, I was diagnosed with Mild Dementia at age 70. 😢 That was hard to accept but Thankful my Brother was with me for my Dr Visit and who keeps an eye on me regularly .

Curious if any others who have it, had a parent with it as well ?

I am trying to get as much education in this to hopefully do the right things to prevent further damage.


  1. Thank you for your reply. I am curious as well. I will be interested in what our community has to say. How great it is that your brother has been with you. Always like to see families involved. Scott Team Member
