  2. Very well done.

    Since there is currently no medical treatment for AD, the treatment becomes coping. Admitting the disease, coming out to others about the disease LEARNING all you can about the disease process, and TEACHING others about the process. Then just doing the best you can.

    HOWEVER . . . . AD is not a disease that affects just one person! (this makes it different from most all other diseases)

    What was left out of this video is her partner/caregiver. Are they prepared for the inevitable changes? Is the partner/caregiver prepared to deal with the later stages? The later stages is a huge burden that the AD person does not carry. It is suffered by others. Where is this caregiving person on the AD continuum of denial and understanding?

    A comment about how she has prepared herself for the inevitable future legally, financially, etc. would also have been of value.
    Still well done

  4. Excellent attitude. I had my stage 5 wife watch this with me. I don't think she was impressed. But I was.

  5. How wonderful it would be if attitude were the cure for dementia. Unfortunately, all dementias are progressive, untreatable, incurable, and fatal. As caregiver to my beloved husband of 40+ years, I'm all over the idea of milking every day for whatever it can be worth. But let's not lose sight of the fact that this is a gruesome killer. "Living well with dementia" is a myth. Dementia kills people--and along the way, it breaks the hearts and wallets of those who love them.
