Alzheimer’s Quotes

I often hear people say that a person suffering from Alzheimer’s is not the person they knew. I wonder to myself – Who are they then?

I often hear people say that a person suffering from Alzheimer’s is not the person they knew. I wonder to myself – Who are they then?
–Bob DeMarco
_____________________________________________
I am saddened when I hear these words –this is not the person I knew — because those words objectify the person suffering from Alzheimer’s.

When you objectify a person you also dehumanize them.

Once dehumanized the person becomes a villain.
–Bob DeMarco
_____________________________________________
There is no substitute for the love of an Alzheimer’s caregiver.
–Bob DeMarco
