I’ve learned a lot about Alzheimer’s Disease in the past few years and I continue to learn every day. I learn from the books I’m reading, through interactions with my mom and other residents, and also from Smokey. He is a silent and constant presence at Conifer House. Smokey is nonjudgmental, caring and patient (unless he is hungry!). My mom is a little less aware of him now, but Smokey is usually not far from her side.
My sister and several friends have encouraged me to start a blog for Smokey, so here it is. I thought a little information about Alzheimer’s and what I’ve learned along the way would be a nice addition. Thanks for reading!
