I don’t want my kids or grandkids to go through this.
One of the hardest things to process is the slow changes in the one you love. Becoming a completely different person. Everything changes. Just so you know. It’s called the long goodbye. Rapidly shrinking brain is how a doctor described it. As the patient's brain slowly dies, they change physically and eventually forget who their loved ones are and become less themselves. Patients can eventually become bedridden, unable to move and unable to eat or drink or talk to their loved ones.
There will be people who will scroll by this message because Dementia or Alzheimer's has not touched them. They may not know what it's like to have a loved one who has fought or is fighting a battle against Dementia or Alzheimer's.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
