My mom was just diagnosed with early alzheimer's. She knows it. I understand her being depressed but I dont know how to help her. I have been the care giver for my mom a little over a yr now. I don't know how far is 'too far' when caring for her. I have a lot of health problems myself. My sisters & I have always PrOmIsEd NeVeR to put her in a nursing home[or other type of facility]. She used to work in one & alawys made us swear we would never. Besides I don't think she's quite that bad, at this piont, anyway. And I don't think I could ever bring myself to do that. I've heard horre stories & witnessed them about facilities. I need some help, please!
