My grandfather had Alzheimers in the 70’s before it even had a name. At that time, they called it “pre-senile dementia.” The progression of this disease was heart- breaking for me and for our family. My once gentle, quiet, kind grandfather became vocal with strong words and odd behavior. My father is now 86 and showing some signs of dementia. We are in the beginning stages of getting a diagnosis. I am 60 years old, I want to know better and do better. Thank you for this platform.
