Alzheimers Disease Journal
(AKA Adventures with Mum and Aunty Norrie)

Welcome to our Alzheimers Disease Journal or as I call it Adventures with Mum and Aunty Norrie.

As the main Carer of both my dear mother and darling Aunty Norrie (my mother’s spinster sister) there is no doubt that I have my fair share of adventure, surprises and exasperation.

I started writing Adventures with Mum and Norrie a few years ago. It began as an email update to friends and family when the three of us went away on a short holiday. However when we got back everybody said they enjoyed receiving the daily journal entries so much that I have kept up with the writing of them, if not the emailing of them.

All about Alzheimers, though, seems the perfect place to print my Alzheimers Disease Journal. In doing so I hope it will offer support to other Carers and family members, and also provide a regular insight to those who have not been touched by the disease.

If you enjoy the journal entries please visit this site often to read the updates, or better still RSS our blog and be notified when there is a new episode to my Adventures with Mum and Norrie for you to read.
