Stages of Alzheimers: Losing Family Memories

One of the most challenging 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 I like, that explains the Stages of Alzheimers. Knowing what to expect won’t change all the feelings you’ll have when it happens to someone you love, but it can still help to be somewhat prepared. Also, it can help to understand that changes in things like behavior, personality and memories are beyond the control of the individual with the disease. It is not a chosen condition.

Stages of Alzheimers

While nothing can reverse the loss of family memories for the one afflicted with Alzheimers, or any other form of dementia, there are things that family members can do now to ensure that family stories and history will live on, for future generations.

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.
