No one likes talking about Alzheimer’s disease, but I am a firm believer in being educated on topics that may one day affect myself or my loved ones. Even though sometimes I like to pretend everyone I care about is invincible, it’s just not the reality. Many people think the forgetful person in their life is “just getting old and senile.” Before I became educated on this disease, that was a phrase that often came from my own mouth. But then my grandfather was diagnosed with dementia (which is caused by Alzheimer’s disease and/or other related neurological diseases). My family was dumbfounded. Why? Because we were not educated and not equipped to discern the warning signs that my grandfather clearly displayed.
