At the age of 90, my mom fell down a flight of stairs. At the time, she had a miraculous recovery. In fact, no broken bones, however her head sustained an injury that in the coming years we found out was the onset of dementia. After your elderly loved one starts this new path, it seems the falls are more frequent. Each fall seemed to take away more of her cognitive ability. Dementia/Alzheimer's is an extremely difficult digression to watch and live through with your loved ones. Best advice is to love them each and every day for who they are and visit them or stay with them always. We hold the precious memories deep in our heart.
I'm leading the way to Alzheimer's first survivor by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®. 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.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
