Support & Insight for the Autumn of Life

Hey, Honey, I Forgot I Have Alzheimer’s!

INSPIRING VIDEO:

B. Smith’s versatile career spans decades. It includes modeling, owning popular restaurants and hosting her own TV show. After receiving a heartbreaking diagnosis of early-onset-Alzheimer’s, she and Dan Gasby, her husband of more than two decades, are determined to live every day fully and lovingly. Their focus? B. has become a key figure in raising public awareness about the degenerative disease. “In the beginning, when it was, you know, starting to happen to me, I didn’t get it.” B. says. “But then I decided that I’m going to get it and I’m going to fight. And we’re going to continue to grow where we are.”

That's absolutely wonderful! I am happy that she lives with support from her husband and in a beautiful home. What about the ones who have never been married, have no children and are alone and poor? I applaud her for fighting, but I am concerned about the lonely, confused people with no one to help them. Thank you for sharing this btw ��

Our "health care system is so bad! Only those w the money to do so can fight Alzheimer's Disease as these two do. Others are overcome with distress and exhaustion! As indicated, decline can be fast—or slow. If slow it drains financial as well as human resources!!

I agree Jan, the distress and exhaustion can be overwhelming. Money makes a huge difference!

I pray research is frantically looking for some magical answers. This disease destroys families: emotionally, financially, and physically! We lost both our parents to this monstrous disease.
