In 1973 I was 26 year old and suffered acute carbon monoxide poisoning. Today, I am capable of living alone, as I always have. My only continued ‘disability' is my immediate recall. Now, a new doctor believes I have early onset of Alzheimer's; wrong. I'm actually better as I know I cannot travel alone to a new destination without a return-home plan (i.e., GPS on car or phone). Traumatic brain Injury (kind of hard to be honest). I don't believe I have early onset dementia!

I am caring for my 53 year old daughter. She has dementia. She gets very hostile towards me; to the point of cursing at me, telling me that she hates me, accusing me of beating her and thinking that I am stealing from her. I worry because after I am gone she has no one else to look after her. I am 78 years old and in good health. I wonder if anyone else has these issues and what options are out there to prepare for after I am gone.

I am caring for my mom-in-law 24 hours a day. She is getting hostile towards me I, and only I think she is in stage 6 dementia. I don't feel safe.
