Post Omaha, NE
Looking for support in Nebraska. My brother was diagnosed with possible LBD in September and has been in skilled nursing care facility due to not being able to walk since September 7th. He is making progress and I'm taking him out for the next three days to see if I can care for him at home.

I'm in North Platte. My husband was diagnosed about a month ago by the VA, along with many other agent orange illnesses. We are really struggling and I am wondering how long I will be able to care for him here at home. The dementia takes me by surprise by the forms it takes day to day... Good days--bad days. He is struggling with knee and ankle pain, so is struggling to walk. Seems to sleep more, but not at night, which exhausts me! I'm looking for moral support as well. Church Lady
