"You sir, are an idiot.
You know not of what you speak.
I'm going to take a shot here and guess that your comment is out of youthful ignorance.
For their sakes, I hope your parents will NEVER have to depend on YOU for care in their declining years."
Many of my relatives had Alzheimer's and WE TOOK CARE OF THEM. We didn't farm them out to an old age WAREHOUSE to be neglected and die and NONE of them were violent.
How dare you point your finger at ME.
OTOH, you sound like the typical cantankerous hypocrite.

Commendations to you and your family for the care you gave your relatives. OTOH, there are people who, for health reasons, cannot care for an Alzheimer's patient in the home. Everyone that I know kept their family member at home as long as possible. I don't know anyone who "farmed" anyone out at a "warehouse."
I've cared for a number of Alzheimer's patients, and they are different at different stages. Some do become violent, and I wonder if sometimes that's because of minor strokes that go unnoticed...in any case, it's an organic disease, and can affect different areas of the brain in different people. When a small, frail wife has a large, aggressive husband with Alzheimer's, she can be harmed, particularly after he no longer recognizes her.

Of all things to be nasty about - ALZHEIMERS is not it! Save the ugly for the enemy. We are not the enemy. And God bless and keep each of you who have cared for and loved a family member stricken with "A"
