The News

Dementia/Alzheimers is on the news, in the papers and in magazines. The information is everywhere. But you know, it really doesn't matter until you're staring it in the face.

My father is a young man in his mid-sixties. So to get The News that he had early onset dementia was a blow to us all. This happened almost 2 years ago. Now here is a man who was very active so I'm hoping that's why my mother decided not to tell us. Of course we noticed he didn't remember things and we were always telling him to write it down. But I would have never thought of this.
