My grandpa has Alzheimer' s so he
has no idea who my grandma is but
everyday for the last three or four
months he brings her in flowers from

on his face is the mast beautiful
heartfelt thing I have ever seen.

My grandpa had Alzheimers and wouldn't recognize anybody when he saw them, but would instantly know who they were over the phone. It was weird

My grandma was the one who put my love of cooking into me. She had immigrated to America from South Africa She wanted to open up a bakery. Unfortunately she was diagnosed with Alzheimer's before she could realize her dreams. What made me happy though was that she never forgot my name. When she started to forget how she made her own cookies I would go into the kitchen and help her. I just recently found a notebook full of all her recipes and she had a note for me. It read "Listen my little iqhawe, I must apologize for not being able to help you with you're wonderful cooking, but I started writing down all my recipes because the day will come when I forget how to make them. Don't worry little one. You'll see me again one day. I expect you to have a lot to teach me about cooking and for you to look a lot older than me." along with some other personal stuff.

My grandpa has Alzheimer's and my dad had to break the news to him.

Dad: "Pops, you have Alzheimer's but it's ok the family is here to help you through it"

Grandpa: "That sounds like a bad break, but hey it could be worse, at least I don't have Alzheimer's"

That is both incredibly sweet and depressing at the same time. My grandpa has Parkinson's, and it's getting really hard to see him go through it. The one thing that gives me some comfort is that at least he still has his mind, so he knows we're all there for him.

The way alzheimers works is you forget your most recent memories and slowly fade back in time. This is why people remember their spouse and parents while they forget who their children are.

Everything about Alzheimers makes me sad

My grandfather had Alzheimer's before he passed away.

It started out just a little strange, but it got gradually worse. My grandmother refused to take him to a home to receive the care he needed, which the Air Force would pay for anyway because of his prior service and rank. He added to the family's stress tremendously and only really got the care he needed after he went nuts one night and attacked my grandmother. I still think about how I should have spoken up back then.

The worst part was his funeral. It was difficult to feel much of anything. I feel like he never simply died; He slowly eroded away from the brilliant, caring man he was to just an unstable, miserable mess. In a way, we were all happy that he moved on and I'm sure he's in a better place, but it just felt wrong. The whole ordeal still haunts me.
