Never expected this to happen in my life but things went downhill when my sister was diagnosed with Alzheimer. Her husband is a busy business man and so I took the responsibility of looking after her. I really find it pathetic when she behaves abnormal. She was working as a teacher at school and gradually she began suffering memory loss. She was admired by all her students for her passion and love towards her career. She started behaving abnormal with the kids at school and it was only then I realised that she can no longer work. I had a tough time getting her stop working for she refused to admit that she is not well. I’m now in a position where I can never leave her alone not even for a second because she packs off to school. I have got a family of my own and it’s my husband who is taking care of my child. Things shouldn’t have been this way but it’s god who decides and we are helpless. She often misplaces things and accuses me for having stolen them. I’m almost lost and don’t know how to move forward. I miss my family and my sister equally. We are twins actually and always stayed together, caring and loving for each other. I don't want to miss her and I’m really enduring a tough time. I’m just hoping to get a caregiver for her so that they will be able to handle her skillfully. Things are new to me and I’m not sure where to find one. As I discussed about this with my brother-in law, he suggested me a dementia caregiver who seems to possess over 10 years of experience in this field. I’m just totally worn out and request your valuable comments as to whether going for a caregiver would benefit me or what else can be done at this juncture. Can this be cured? I want my sister normal back again….

I was really busy yesterday and today so cleaning was not an option. Tomorrow I’ll get back into my cleaning spirit!!!A few days ago I woke up with extreme confidence. I did manage to stuff my garbage bag and recyclables completely full. I also got some more of my boxes tore up. Plus I got all the dishes taken care of. There’s more that I’ll have to stack into the dish washer tomorrow, but...
