I don't understand how someone could have a loved one that loses their memory like that. It's crazy. I remember when I was young my grandmas coworker at the daycare they worked at had alzheimers. I didn't understand at all what was going on but looking back at it now. Probably one of the saddest things that ever. Anyone else been around people with alzheimers?

It's a mess of a disease. I did community service at an Alzheimer's facility. Fucking sad.
People can barely remember how to talk.
A Vietnamese lady was all upset I didn't take my shoes off in her "home".
People revert back to their native tongue and they get pissed off when no one understands.
They're big children, but more sad.

My neighbor had Alzeimers. We called him Alzeimer Eddie and he was walked around the neighborhood all the time. He was such a funny & nice old man. And he was a war veteran so whenever he walked past an American flag in someone
s yard, he would stop & salute. He never remembered anybody he met when he took his walks, he asked for me & my friends' name averyday and made different comments on our names everyday. It was honestly precious & I loved him. He would forget where he lived a couple times though so I had to take him home sometimes. He suddenly passed 2 years ago though :'( I will always remember him <3

Yeah dude I've seen that up close.
This war veteran thought I fought with him in world war 2 and he kept asking me why I wasn't in uniform. It's sad as hell tbh and I pray to god it doesn't happen to me.

Yea its probably just as bad but I look at it like. I can still enjoy my time with the person at least. Alzheimers is they are still there but they aren't fully its horrible

Cancer is horrible but at least the person still has there mind.

My cousin had cancer somewhere on her neck, spine region, and I felt so bad watching her go through kimo. She just had a kid when she found out too.
I think Alzheimer's is worse though, like the people don't even know who you are, it's sad, it's like they've already died.
