    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Happy New Year!
    Apologies for lagging behind in sending you greetings - I still have cartons to unpack! Hope you had a good holiday despite the burden of having a loved one with Alzheimer's or another dementia. Do feel free to write in - someone will respond - and I will, too.

    Remember to take good care of yourself, too,
    Judy

    Happy New Year, everyone!!

    My dad is continuing to do well in the VA nursing home. His Alzheimer's is advancing as expected but he is getting excellent care.

    My wife, two young adult sons, and I had a wonderful holiday season. I hope you all did too.

    Happy New Year to all!

    Judy, I feel for you, still having boxes to unpack. I hope you get settled in soon, and that your new place will start to feel like home.

    Dave, I'm glad your dad is doing well. Do you get to see him fairly often?

    It's good to hear that your family had such a nice holiday. My family and I did, too. I'm always so sorry when it's over for another year. One thing you can count on, though, is that the holiday season will be looming again before we know it!

    Hi, Carol.

    We make an effort to see my dad at least once per month. It is an hour drive each way and a bit difficult as both my wonderful wife and I are disabled with serious spinal injuries. My dad no longer has a true sense of time passing, and to him we either have just visited him or not been there for years.

    I am glad you and your family had a good holiday season as well.
