Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
My husband Bob has Alzheimer's. His sister passed away from emphysema and complications of Alzheimer's in Jan 2018. This is a terrible disease. His mother and both grandmothers died from it. We need to find a cure now!
Since last year, Bob is getting worse. He is losing words and is confused a lot. He can't do much of anything without help. It's very hard to understand what he tries to tell me. It's hard to watch this progression. I just take one day at a time. I love my caregivers' group that is supported by these donations.
In November of 2018 we went to Stanford and spent a day trying to get into a drug study. But in the end, they said his Alzheimer's was too far advanced for the study.
As of August 2020, Bob is getting worse. Sometimes he doesn't know me. He wants to go to his other home. He is a lot worse late afternoon and evenings. He's very confused. He asks me the same questions over and over.
He will be moving into Westwind, a memory care facility, sometime in September depending on Covid restrictions.
I am walking for Bob and the memory of his family members. This is a disease that can affect anyone and any family.
I hope there is a "smoking gun" for Bob, but if not, then for his kids and grand-kids.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer's!
