alzheimers news-kids and the alzheimers lady

Image result for organicgreendoctor
one thing i have noticed over the last few years
is that the kids
the grandkids
the kids
the nephews
the nieces
they sometimes get all lost in the alzheimers story

i sat by a young relative at a restaurant
i asked him did he remember his grandpa who
died from alzheimers disease
yes he said
not as well as i use to though
he seemed to sadden up and not want to talk about it

i thought of him
thought of my brothers grandkids as i watched the video below
wondering how his alzheimers disease
his downward course
what effect it had on them

what effect does it have on those kids that are sort of
ignored it seems

as i watched this video of these kids talking to the lady
with alzheimers
i thought about all this

ive watched this video several times and get teary eyed
as i think about
it being me sitting in that chair
answering questions from miss b
i hope she understands it all one day

i hope that if you have a child exposed to this disease
you try to explain it all to them

we need financial support to fight this disease
emotional support to deal with it
