My Mother is 93 and never knows what day of the week it is until she checks the paper or her handy-dandy wstch with a calendar. As she says, her forgetter is getting better all the time. She's still blessed with a sense of humor and is feisty, but the frustration of not being able to remember (if she's eaten breakfast, where her laundry basket goes, when my brother visited last, that we have a guest bedroom, that she was going to get dressed...) takes a toll on her and us every single day. We work to live in and enjoy the present moment.
She lives with us. We continue to learn from her and are honored to share this journey with her.Living with forgetfulness every day goes beyond an individual issue, and reaches past even the entire family. This stretches to friends, neighbors, and impacts medicine, providers, and the economy.
As avresult it requires a community wide response to be effective. We need to know more. We need to have an understanding of brain function that can produce treatment options and ultimately prevent this memory loss.
This search for answers requires responsible research, action linked with kindness and thoughtful community resources. That's asking a lot. But, with determination we can make it happen. We can find a treatment, prevention and cure.Please make a donation to participate in making this happen.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
