Life with Alzheimer’s Disease can be pretty tough. It’s tough on sufferers of this debilitating disease and it’s tough on caregivers too. Although much progress has been made researching Alzheimer’s Disease, it still remains a bit of a mystery to us all. It’s been called “the memory thief” and affects half of all people over 85. In an effort to educate the public on Alzheimer’s and Dementia, The Senior List (as well as other publishers) have shared the 10 early signs of Alzheimer’s Disease which was put together by the good folks at the Alzheimer’s Association (alz.org).
In a wonderfully presented video, Lisa Cerasoli invites us into her world of caregiving for her grandmother Nora Jo. Nora Jo suffers from Alzheimer’s Disease. One of the many things that Alzheimer’s Disease steals from sufferers are the most profound memories of our lives. In this case, Nora Jo relives the terrible news that her husband has died. She relives this realization every single day.
This is the first video in a mini series that Lisa Cerasoli has put together entitled “Life With Alzheimer’s Disease”. She uploaded this video (entitled “Truth”) in 2011.
