Mrs. Jones doesn’t feel well . . . . . 

Let’s raise awareness about that. 

  • Tell folks she has alzheimer’s and  she is becoming forgetful 

Or

  • Tell folks she has alzheimer’s and she can’t cook for herself, she don’t remember to go to the bathroom, she doesn’t know her own children, she wanders in the neighborhood and search teams look for her, she cries, she laughs, she gets scared, she hits people, she hurts herself

Yes, their is a difference. How much money and time and effort has been wasted being nice about a “mean” disease? The money, time and effort were not wasted, but could have had more of an impact. 

Let’s please talk about what it is like in the trenches with a full time caregiver.
