I could use a play on words and explain the reason this last post in our A to Z Blogging Challenge is late by saying something about forgetting to do it.
The truth is that it's a difficult subject to write, or even think, about. For those of us with adult children who have Down syndrome, the worry about Alzheimer's disease is always present.
Many people with Ds begin showing signs of Alzheimer’s as early as 40 years old. It is essential that adults with Ds not lose the ground they’ve worked so hard to gain. The results of our research will benefit the Alzheimer's community, even in individuals without Down syndrome.

We're always on the lookout for new resources to add. If you find one that you think we should share, please let us know!
