Hiya, my names Norrms, married happily forever !! Eight grandchildren and 1 great grandson, yes i am only 52 lol. I was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimers at the age of 50 and now 52. I also have heart failure (diagnosed when i was 44yrs old but still here !!) I fully intend being the first person to survive this awful disease, if not i want to do what i can while i can to help and put into writing and verse what its like to suffer from Alzheimers and all its repercussions, best wishes, Norrms and family xxxxxxx

Life experiences

Outlook on life

I love my life !! Even though i have been diagnosed with early onset of AD and have heart failure. Life is such a wonderful gift and even when sometimes you think all is lost, life will always find a way.
Alzheimers is NOT the end, its just another chapter of you life that you have to deal with the best you can. I will never give up and i hope my enthusiasm and love of life will shine through and help you along the way

Telling Family

I am a great belever in sitting family down and explaining all about Alzheimers at the earliest oppertunity after diagnosis, so as to squash any urban myths straight away. Let other people think what they want and try to educate them but family? they must know the truth


I have no medical background at all and the only thing i know about caring is what me (Angel) wife Elaine has taught me. She had thirty years in the caring profession before becoming my full time carer. I am just a simple northern lad (certaily not educated !LOL)who likes to put his expieriences and poems down on paper so to try and help as many as possible in my predicament

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

I am just a simple northern lad who has found himself in this position and wants to do as much as i can whilst i can, best wishes, Norrms and family xxxxxxxxxxxxx

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
