Following a thorough physical and neurological examination, our mother was diagnosed as being in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease. My siblings and I are starting to talk about future care and what actions we should be taking to keep her safe. Unfortunately we are clueless and don't even know where to start. Our father died very suddenly years ago, so we never dealt with any care plan issues with him. Can you give us some direction?
