Jason Answers Questions About His Life with Dementia

Jason
What's it like having early-onset dementia? Find out today from Jason, who shares his answers with viewers who have asked about his experiences and those of his wife Leslie. (Video)

Jason and Leslie have taken it upon themselves to share the triumphs and challenges they are living with in a video series they launched after Jason’s diagnosis of early-onset dementia.

In this segment, Jason responds to questions from viewers asking him about what life is like as he and his wife navigate issues like chasing down an accurate diagnosis, contending with daytime sleepiness and sleep problems at night, among others.

Jason was diagnosed in 2018 with early-onset dementia; Leslie, a registered nurse and his wife of 32 years, is his caregiver. “We want to educate the world, because there is a false perception associated with this disease,” the couple says, adding their hope that their project can help others “not feel so alone.”
