One of the most difficult parts of living with and loving someone with Alzheimers, is witnessing the loss of family memories–even the recognition of spouse and children.
Here is a video which explains the Stages of Alzheimers. While knowing what to expect won’t change the feelings you experience when a loved one is afflicted with Alzheimers, it can still help to be prepared.
Stages of Alzheimers
Though nothing can reverse the loss of memories for the one afflicted with Alzheimers, there are things that family members can do now, to ensure that their loved one’s life story and legacy will live on for years to come.
As a Video Biographer, I have witnessed first hand the role of Alzheimer’s and dementia in families and understand the importance of capturing stories and information before it is too late.
Alzheimer’s is real, and it does, sadly, “take away.” But it can also give back in the form of mindfulness and choice by those whose memories remain vivid. Bearing witness to a loved one’s loss of memory sometimes marks a turning point for a family to begin remembering, together. When that happens, it is the first step to creating a living legacy.
