As a career Registered Nurse, I have developed a special fondness for our elderly, especially those with Dementia and Alzheimer's. One dear friend in particular is Pauline. She was my mother's best friend and the stories she told about their childhood antics are so precious to me!
Alzheimer's is a progressive disease which causes brain deterioration over the course of years, affecting both physical and cognitive functioning. By the end stages, the individual often cannot use their body and may not even be able to swallow.
A diagnosis of Alzheimer's can be devastating to the individual and their family but there is hope! Check out Alz.org the premier Alzheimer's organization devoted to research, resources and support for families and individuals.
Please help me support this important cause for Pauline, her family and friends, all those who are struggling and heartbroken but also hopeful. As the Association says, the first Alzheimer's survivor is alive right now!
Let's find the First Survivor together!
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
