    My Mom has beginning dementia. It is difficult since she was always quiet to begin with. Now talking to her is a major pain. She doesn't remember anything from earlier in the day or yesterday and looks at my Dad now to get answers. Anyone else have experience with this? And how long did your parent have dementia before it turned to alzheimer's and got really bad? My Dad is overwhelmed taking care of her and they can't afford nursing care or facility.

    My Grandmother died from it, and it was very difficult. I am here for you.
