Welcome to The Alzheimer Spouse
You have come to a place of truth, support, and solutions to the distinctive issues and challenges faced by the spouses of Alzheimer patients. This is a place of comfort for spouses who are trying to cope with the Alzheimer's/dementia of their husband/wife. I started this website in July 07, when the shock of what Alzheimer's Disease was doing to a decades long loving marriage had me in emotional turmoil.
The issues we face in dealing with a spouse with this disease are so different from the issues faced by children and grandchildren caregivers. We discuss all of those issues here - loss of intimacy; social contact; conversation; anger; resentment; stress; and pain of living with the stranger that Alzheimer's Disease has put in place of our beloved spouse. Please look on the left side of this page for all of the resources offered by this website.
