Life went on
But it was never
Bob is now 71 years old. These pictures show the physical toll that Alzheimers has taken on Bob, but the hardest to watch is the slow deterioration of his mind due to dementia. At this point, he doesn’t recognize us, appears, unaware of his surroundings, and needs assistance with everything. He often seems oblivious to what is happening, even right in front of him. Bob just qualified for hospice and he will now get additional support from the hospice staff from Elara Caring as well as Maple Glen.
Please consider donating to our walk to help us continue to fight this disease, funding efforts to support the Alzheimer’s Association and its efforts in research, support, and the goal to find a cure.
I would not wish this devastating journey on any family and wish that every day our family didn’t have to lose Bob, my life’s partner and best friend, Bob, the father and grandpa. Starting that day in 2011 this has truly become the most painful longest goodbye to the man I love!
Thank you all always for your love and support!
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
