Hi jlhughette--welcome to the forum. I am sorry to hear about your sister's decline and the many women in your family who have had AD. I agree that it is difficult for someone with AD to implement the protocol by themselves. Is anyone at her assisted living facility knowledgeable about the protocol and willing to help her?
As for your question about boot camps--that is a great idea! But I do not know of one. I attended a 4 day Immersion program with Dr. Bredesen last March (with family members), but I have not heard for sure if there will be another one soon. (Maybe someone else on the forum knows?)
I saw a similar question in another recent post
about whether the protocol works in someone quite far along with AD. This was the comment:
I did ask the question in the last Town Hall meeting about the chances of success with a stage 5 AD patient, and Dr. Bredesen seemed encouraging.
You and your sister have made a great start in finding a functional medicine doctor familiar with the Bredesen protocol, and in reading Bredesen's book. Exercise is an important part of the protocol, so your sister's physical fitness should be an asset. Have you found the Primer
on this site? It is another great resource to help you both get started. (Due to her hysterectomy, the HRT section may be of interest?)
Hugs to you both as you start on this journey. As questions come up along the way, please post them. There are so many knowledgeable people here to help you.
