Thanks for the valuable tips.

Thanks for the valuable tips. My father in law is showing the starting symptoms of Alzheimer's. I went through the tips you have provided which found very valuable for me. I have also gone for a nannies care service in Toronto so that he is being monitored 24x7. Expecting more tips and information from the members here.
