I am blogging about family memories, caregiving and family members who have been touched by Alzheimer’s or other dementias. And I’m also blogging about joy.
In a four year period, my Dad died from Alzheimer’s, and both my Mom and husband were diagnosed with dementia. My husband’s dementia is considered to be ‘young onset’, as he was diagnosed in his 50’s. The disease has now progressed to what’s considered ‘late stage’ but there is still joy to be found.
Update 2/14: My husband passed away the day after Christmas, two days after his birthday.
I live in the Midwest. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
