My first comments are with the stages of Az. Upon my readings and attending support groups, they have told me there are 3 stages, mild, medium and severe. Within those stages there are overlapping symptoms to varying degrees.
Upon reading comments, the families that have the support of friends, family are truly blessed. My mother had been diagnosed in 2008, after a fall which broke her hip, while dancing at her senior center. Surgery, rehab and a brief stay at assisted livering, while recovering, she fell again, and
fractured her other hip. Once again, surgery and in rehab. She hated
assisted living and became one angry old lady. So the family moved her back home.
Although, before mom became sick, she had DPOA's, patient advocate and her will made out, to make a long story short, it has become a nightmare. Both myself and brother have the same dual DPOAs. He may be living with mom free and clear, but has arranged for care giving. He has made a mess of her finances. He just doesn't get it and now will not allow family to visit.
Consulting with legal advisors have told me to go to court for conservator/ guardian.
Will this solve the matter? My brother has made this all about him
He hides behind mom, feels he is entitled. Once mom passes away, I will deal with him on my own terms, as I am excutrix of mom's estate.
I have my memories when mom was of sound mind.
