Alzheimer's Quote and Thought of the Day

I am saddened when I hear these words 
This is not the person I knew 
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

Alzheimer's Reading Room



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
When necessary
-- Bob DeMarco
