My mom had Alzheimer's. I was her main caretaker, even though I had some help from my dad. It was a slow process, at first, but she suffered a stroke. That speeded up her process.

She passed away 20 years ago. A couple years ago, when my oldest brother passed away, I found out that he had dementia. (This wasn't known while he was alive). Sometimes, I try not to wonder if any other sibling or myself, will end up with it.
