FOR GREGORY. He was not a VICTIM of ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE, he was a HERO!
PLEASE NOTE: Even though this blog is now dormant there are many useful, insightful posts. Scroll back from the end or forward from the beginning. Also, check out my writer's blog. Periodically I will add posts here if they provide additional information about living well with Dementia / Alzheimer's Disease.

I also believe in belief! I believe that Gregory was able to continue to do so well for as long as he did because we both were able to support his brain’s ability to change and heal itself. We read, we traveled, we talked, we went to opera and musicals, we entertained, we engaged family and friends, we enjoyed our pets, we planned, we walked, we communed with nature, we kept out expectations high, we enjoyed life to its fullest.
In the end we all must die. We have known this from when we were first born. Perhaps facing this also helps the brain do its best until it is ready to go back home.
