  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
