A Alzheimer’s diagnosis is never easy for both the patient and their loved ones. These two women are both a caregiver and an individual who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. The affects of Alzheimer’s on both of their lives have been daunting but one thing they appreciate and emphasize to other families who have had an Alzheimer’s diagnosis is to preserve your stories.

These stories make you who you are and connect your family to your past. Alzheimer’s will have bumps along the road but remember you and your loved ones are still in there despite what ALzheimer’s has taken away from you. Alzheimer’s doesn’t wait and neither should you, what’s your favorite story?
