A man with Alzheimer’s Disease pleads with his friends and family to treat him like “the same old person”. In this emotional Facebook testimonial, the gentleman opens up his heart and tells it like it is. The simple truth is that Alzheimer’s Disease scares people. It makes many people uncomfortable, because lots of folks don’t have a lot of experience with it.
MaryBeth Beamer’s husband (with the help of MaryBeth) provides a blue print for his friends and family. My guess is that most early stage Alzheimer’s sufferers would tell us the same thing.
Man With Alzheimer’s Records Message
Wife MaryBeth Beamer: “What do you want your friends to know out there about Alzheimer’s… What you need?”
Just need to know that I’m the same old person, and I wish that all of my friends could come up and just talk to me, just like they did before. And uh, you know play and joke around. – Posted on Facebook, Jan. 3, 2016
