Are you a spouse, adult child, or friend of someone with younger onset (under age 65) dementia?

My wife Linda was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 2003, when she was 53. I cared for her in our home until August, 2009, when she moved to a group home. She passed away in August, 2013.

Introduction

I was a caregiver for my wife Linda for ten years. I live in South Minneapolis, work in the software business, and have two grown daughters, a great son-in-law, and a large cat named Leroy. I enjoy biking, swimming, jazz concerts, and live theater.
