I talked with my friend and I am worried.

I have known this couple for a long time and they are my oldest friends as age goes. I have noticed for a while that Marta has some memory problems. Hector went with her to a neurologist last year and they are both in a sort of class where they have to remember words and numbers. Hector has no problem, but Marta started first to repeat the same thing several times. After that, she started to ask what it had just been said. Today, I called them to see if they were coming and she answered the phone. She consistently called her husband by her eldest son´s name. I have the feeling that there is no way back now. What can I do? How can I help? For the moment, I take no notice of it all. When Hector wants to tell me about it, I´ll help if there is something I can do. Have you been in this situation?

I'm sorry that your long time friend is suffering memory loss. My own mother has alzheimers, it began with her being forgetful and us catching her writing things down in an attempt to remember them. She got lost on more then 1 occasion on the 10 mile drive home from town. Then her personality just changed completely, she became a nasty woman where she was never like that in the past. I hope that your friends tell you, and you just do what feels right in your heart.
