I have been considering this option with my husband for my mother. My father seems to be on board with it as well. We are considering just having some help for her step in a few hours a day just to make sure she is taking her medication, do a daily check up, and make sure my dad is handling everything okay. How much would something like this cost if the insurance does not cover it?

I have been doing a lot of reading and I am scared for my mother. I know she has Alzheimer's now and while she seems to be just going with the flow of things and not stressing, I am worried I will see her get so bad she doesn't even know me anymore. I am an only child and very close with her. While I found a lot saying the chances of improvement are poor, you can slow the onset of it with exercise, memory therapy, and a healthy diet. One thing that stood out to me though is dealing with the diet. A natural medicine and health doctor responded to someone else's question saying diet can improve and even reverse this horrible disease but it needs to be started right away and you need to know the right diet. She recommends using coconut oil, lemon juice, and a few other things daily to detox the body and help protect the brain. Is this something that is possible since her's isn't that bad yet??
