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 thinks it is interesting that "Al" is able to take the same job Bob had at his last place of employment (code for Adult Day Center), and step into a new environment and "Al" has still made Bob the boss. It is sort of like his safety zone, what he knows best and where he is most comfortable in "Al's" mind. So for "them" everything is still the same, but for Sheri .... everything is very different.
