‘It’s no fun arguing with someone who doesn’t understand you. But I feel badly talking about it because we are so much more fortunate than so many people with this diagnosis,’ she said.
She went on to describe how Bennett was still in good spirits despite experiencing the effects of the disease and how he was still trying to maintain his normal lifestyle.
‘He would ask me, “What is Alzheimer’s?” I would explain, but he wouldn’t get it. He’d tell me, “Susan, I feel fine.” That’s all he could process…So, nothing changed in his life,’ Crow noted.
