Lapham News Blog: "We have been to Delphi. Arlene probably has beginning Alzheimer’s and also so do I. We are both on Namenda and Excelon. The Excelon will help with our Parkinson’s if we get that too. The Alzheimer’s is in the early stages, but there is not much of a down side to starting treatment early. Neither of us is terribly serious yet. I still expect to die of a heat attack before the Alzheimer’s get serious. I suppose Arlene could be in more trouble than I am.
It there is any way to avoid a nursing home, I intend to find it."
