FINDING SUPPORT

Michael M. hails from New York. When he moved to Springfield a few years ago for work, he found himself alone and dealing with one of the biggest challenges of his life – the Alzheimer’s Disease of his beloved wife, Sandra. Sandra was 67, an RN who ran her own holistic nursing practice, when she first began showing symptoms of dementia. Michael shares that the first sign was Sandra not being able to calculate a 20% tip on a dinner bill. Michael states that “we joked about it” and he tried re-teaching her but “it just did not click”.
