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"

Sheri is struggling with this bus company. There has not been one day in which they have made it to her door to pick up Bob. Unfortunately yesterday may have been the last straw because on the return trip when the driver could not find the rental office of the community, thankfully Sheri was outside and watched them deliver him and walk him in to a building across the street. Sheri is a bit ashamed to say that her not so nice side came out, as she was yelling across the street that they were taking him to wrong location. Especially when the driver said "Well "he"(pointing to "Al") said it was this place."
Sheri needs a new plan, vunerable adults can not speak for themselves and this is not okay.


  1. Do not feel bad. That is inexcusable on the bus company's part. Even people who should know better, don't. I have had more than one person question why I wont use uber or a cab for my spouse. Seriously? The bus company should know better. I hope you are able to work out more reliable service with the company.

  2. Oh no, so sorry. Hope you get it figured out soon!

  3. I am trying to work every angle I can to get them to the right place at the right time. Believe me I am just as frustrated with them as you are! You are an AMAZING woman! Between the 2 of us we will make this work!!

    1. Hi! So fun to see you here! I know you are you and the staff at Open Circle are wonderful! Thank you so much for the kind comments and all your help!

  4. Yikes Sheri. Thank goodness you were there to summon the driver. You are in my prayers tonight.
