Hello Reddit. My name is Jeff and I will be answering questions on behalf of my grandfather (who has Alzheimer's). He was diagnosed about a year and a half ago. Doctors have not really given a timeline as it affects each individual differently. He has been getting worse with each day.
I will ask him your questions and will respond with his answers. He is fairly mentally stable today and has agreed to do this. I am doing this to raise awareness of the disease and to answer questions for people who are interested. You can also ask me questions.
Edit: Thanks for the questions and support everyone. It is nice to see that some people are interested in this type of thing. He is tired and ready for bed so we are calling it a night. I will try to answer more questions (if there are any) later. Thanks again!
Edit 2: He's up and ready for questions for a little while. He's feeling pretty good this morning.
Edit 3: Okay I think we're finished. Thank you everyone for your kind remarks. We both enjoyed this.
