My Dad’s Alzheimer’s DiagnosisAllison Espiritu
Amy Goyer’s father was a very positive man who retired from teaching at the age of 72. A 10-year volunteer with AARP after retirement, he stayed strong but it was the subtle things that Amy had noticed, that made her realize something just wasn’t right with her father. From not being able to find his way tp forgettign things he may have just asked, they weren’t huge issues that restricted him from living life normally.
But it was the day that the doctor told her father that he may have Alzheimer’s that, Amy new he was right but her father just had a hard time accepting it. Rather than state the obvious, Amy and her family aren’t pushing the diagnosis label but rather are approaching as what are the needs for her father with this type of diagnosis.
