One Face of Alzheimer’s.

Meet our Uncle Joe.

A year ago, Joe was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. At 90 years of age he continues to do remarkably well.

Our cousin Michael is his primary caregiver and with little outside help has done incredible work to make sure Joe is well cared for while remaining at home. Over the bed is a painting of Aunt Teddy who died nearly 20 years ago.

Though Joe’s memory continues to slide, his recollections of Teddy remain clear and vibrant as if he spoke with her just yesterday.
