This blog is about life with my husband who was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer's and Frontal Lobe Dementia in 2008. He was 64 at the time although now, knowing more about the disease, Alzheimer's was present many, many years ago, which is why early detection is so important. As you read the blog the character"Al" that I created in 2008 represents the way that Alzheimer's is invading our daily lives.

Living with Bob and "Al"

Bob is still upset that when they leave "work" (code for Adult Day Center) the other staff takes his name badge. When they got in the car yesterday "Al" said with an air of frustration in his voice " I don't understand why they take that from me, they certainly aren't going to use it. Besides how will I know who I am."  :)
Sheri is hoping that was Bob's humor showing through at the end there. Quite frankly it is getting harder and harder to tell, but he wasn't smiling.

  1. they obviously know his condition, can't they have a second / alternate to swap with him when he leaves ?
