I am saddened when I hear these words --this is not the person I knew -- because those words objectify the person suffering from Alzheimer's. When you objectify a person you also dehumanize them. Once dehumanized the person becomes a villain. -- Bob DeMarco
My mother is still the same person I have known all my life.
She suffers from Alzheimer's disease.
Her brain sends her the wrong signal quite often.
Its up to me to let her use my brain.
