People With Alzheimer’s May Still Be ‘There’

As the symptoms of Alzheimer’s worsen, it may seem like people fade away into a memory-less oblivion and there’s no hope for seeing their old selves. But caregivers know that’s not true.

This touching article by Marie Marley describes her experience volunteering for a local memory care facility. Her encounters with patients who seemed mentally gone who show flashes of awareness forced her to reassess her understanding of awareness in patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.

Just sharing music and talking with them can have a profound impact on their well-being and help preserve precious memories. People with Alzheimer’s are definitely still ‘there.’

Read her story and learn more about her experience as a caregiver and the lessons she learned.
