This is my first stab so bear with me please as I am living alone with Young Onset Alzheimer's Disease. I am in the early stage and was diagnosed in 2017. I am care partner to my two pet cats. I say partner because they keep me company and remind me to eat, drink and play. I feed and care for them myself. I was a IT Systems Engineer and Integration Specialist before Alzheimer's forced early retirement at 56 years of age. I use my extensive IT skills to continuously enhance a variety of mitigation strategies, tools and techniques both technical and not to help me maintain my independence.
