The road several of my friends are traveling is bumpier than any I have been on. Many of them have expressed great surprise concerning the difference between what they expected and what they are experiencing. Most admit they always thought alzheimer’s was just memory loss.
“When you’ve seen one alzheimer’s patient, you’ve seen one alzheimer’s patient” That quote rings true for me, especially after engaging in conversations with hundreds of caregivers. Their is always one common thread though and that is the sadness of observing someone lose their memories.
Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth leading cause of death in America and their is no cure.
