My 24/7 Mom Role

Last updated: June 2022

My 48-year-old son has down syndrome/Alzheimer's = 24/7 total care! I am a single mom = 76 years old!

Thank God for meds that helped get through the combative phase! The repetition and sundowning are the hardest things for me to deal with!

Having a support group has really made my life a lot easier! People that understand where you are coming from! Sharing stories!!
