I noticed she was losing weight. She began acting odd, putting potato chips in her freezer, misplacing things like her wallet, forgetting how to work her tv. Again, i thought nothing of it, assuming at 89 shes was going to forget some things. I didnt know the difference at the time. I learned the hard way.
Alzheimer's took her memories of a life well lived, memories of her family, memories that should have lasted a lifetime. Although she is still with us now living comfortably in a nursing home, she is all together a different person. A shell of her former self. This is what Alzheimer's does.
We have all learned to adjust to our new normal. My grandmother is happy and otherwise healthy and thats what matters. I love her just the same.
By participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's(R), I'm committed to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer's research, care and support.
Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.
I need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's. For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.
Thank you for joining the movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts with you.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
